Mentor and Induction Program

Experienced educators who are transferring to PWCS should meet with the school's Lead Mentor to be provided with proactive support while adjusting to the division. These individuals may be matched with an informal mentor, depending on their needs.

Educators who are teaching for the first full year will be matched with school-based teacher-mentors (formal mentors), as required by the Virginia Department of Education.
