Hopkinton Induction Program
In August each year, new teachers are invited to learn about the Hopkinton Public School District during a New Teacher Orientation. Here they will meet their mentors and administrators, learn about the school community, and be introduced to district technologies.
First year teachers are provided mentors who will assist them with the transition and throughout the first year in Hopkinton. A Year One Induction Calendar has been established to help guide conversations, supports, and professional learning. The calendar is intended to supplement the Hopkinton New Teacher Mentoring Program Guidebook.
