MENTORING PROGRAM: Education Summit Announced
Making sure Iowa students have the best prepared teachers in the classroom will be the focus of a statewide education summit.
DMACC in Ankeny will host the second Iowa Teacher and Principal Leadership Symposium in August.
Organizers say it will focus on ways the best teachers can mentor other educators.
Lawmakers passed the mentoring plan as part of last year’s education reform package. They appropriated $50-million for the next three years to fund it.
Two districts are already taking advantage of the program.
“We have a lot of work to do but we’re making great progress. This is an extraordinary time to be an educator in Iowa. A lot is at stake for our students and our state,” Ryan Wise, deputy director of the Iowa Department of Education said.
Central Decatur and Saydel are the first two districts to develop the mentoring program.
