This learning series provides an opportunity for district teams including a program lead, a mentor/coach, a site administrator, and one other member of your choice (i.e. Curriculum Director, Assistant Superintendent, Principal, School Board Member) to learn together with a diverse network of stakeholders that support induction and mentoring work.
