Statewide Mentoring Program

The 2016 Legislature created a program to provide for the mentoring of teachers new to the profession in South Dakota school districts. The program provides new teachers access to a mentor teacher for a period of two years, along with participation in a summer workshop following the first year of employment.

Thank you for your interest in the Statewide Mentoring Program. The application window for the 2022-2023 School Year has closed. Please look for information regarding the 2023-2024 school year coming in March 2023.
