Research indicates that 30 percent of new teachers leave the profession during their first three years of service. Citing studies that demonstrate mentoring can foster a successful first year for a teacher, the New York State Education Department requires each school district to have a mentoring program in place. South Colonie was one of the early pioneers of this initiative establishing an active teacher mentoring program many years ago. For more information on the program, click here.
