New Teacher Induction Day
Each August district administrators, the Board of Education, building principals, and instructional coaches gather to welcome teachers new to LPS. Our welcome breakfast includes an opportunity for teachers to meet district leadership followed by a short program which includes our traditional pinning ceremony. Following the breakfast, the LPS instructional coaches join new teachers in attending Induction Day workshops organized to provide helpful information for the transition into LPS. Sessions are tailored to address teacher’s informational needs on programs and goals for school and student achievement, and to familiarize teachers with the district’s interpretation of state and national policies and practices. Professional learning support services and staff are also introduced and identified at this time.
