During the first few weeks of school your Mentor will be helping you to become familiar with your school/district/state educational procedures, policies, and requirements. He/she will help you assure that you have completed the registration process and licensure application on DEEDS and submitted all documents as required and/or requested by the certification office so that your Initial License can be issued and activated as soon as possible.

During this time, your Mentor may assist you with the following:

  • Becoming familiar with school, district, and state policies and procedures
  • Securing materials such as supplies, curricular guides, and other resource materials
  • Confirming that you have the appropriate technology, books, and professional materials
  • Discussing specific guidelines, responsibilities, and events that are unique to your building
  • Identifying locations in the school that you will need to know - library, cafeteria, playground, etc.
  • Assuring that you understand the emergency policies and procedures
  • Other needs as identified by you or the site
