New Teacher Academy
As part of its commitment to high quality teaching, the Washoe County School district has designed an Induction Program to support newly hired teachers. The Induction Program consists of the Mentor Teacher Program and the New Teacher Academy.
The New Teacher Academy provides essential professional development aimed at meeting the needs of newly hired teachers. Classes are offered at various times and in numerous locations throughout the District. Newly hired teachers may choose to attend classes during non-contract time and earn inservice credit.
There is no registration fee for courses required by the New Teacher Academy. When registering for a course, teachers choose "1 Inservice Credit - Fee Waived" for courses offered during non-contract hours.
New hires who have previously completed a particular training may apply for an exemption. Principal approval must be obtained for an exemption.
