• New Teacher Summer Institute: Overview and changes for this year

    All principals

    The 2017 New Teacher Summer Institute (NTSI) will take place from Monday, August 14, to Friday, August 18. (New special educators will receive additional training from Monday, August 21 to Wednesday, August 23.) New teachers received registration information for both events from the Human Capital Office.

    New this year: All first-year teachers will attend NTSI for the entire week, and will not participate in a stand-alone, site-based day during that week. All schools and mentors are asked to plan and carry out their own site-based orientation for their first-year teachers.

    For more information, review the COMAR specifications regarding new teacher induction, the school guidance for new teacher orientation, or additional resources on the Mentor Academy Sharepoint site.

    For questions about site-based mentors or Mentor Academy, contact Shanna Warburton-Barnes in the Organizational Development department at snwarburton@bcps.k12.md.us. For questions about new teacher support or NTSI specifically, contact Tina Goette at tjablonowski@bcps.k12.md.us.
