This bill would create
new provisions that place more requirements on teacher mentor programs in the
state. It would mandate that teacher mentors mentor teachers for up to two
years and that orientation instructions and policy be data driven. To establish
this system, this bill would create an allotment for mentor teachers through a
new formula that the commission creates.
This bill would place more costs on current programs that seek to mentor incoming teachers at schools; so much so that this bill allows for the creation of a new allotment system to pay for the changes in the program. This offends our limited government principle, therefore we oppose this bill.
