Teacher Induction

  • The Office of Teacher Induction operates to attract, retain, and help to develop highly qualified teachers and staff by providing support, assistance, encouragement, and professional development for teachers in Norfolk Public Schools. The Teacher Induction Program (TIP) begins during New Teacher Orientation in August and continues throughout the school year. Mentor teachers and instructional support personnel provide ongoing support and assistance. Novice teachers participate in a three-year Teacher Induction Program that includes professional learning seminars in a collaborative and supportive environment.
