State Education Department Awards $2 Million to 25 Mentor Teacher Internship Programs


The New York State Education Department awarded $2 million annually in grants to 25 recipients to implement Mentor Teacher Internship Programs (MTIP), State Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia announced today. These programs enable experienced teachers in a district or BOCES to provide guidance and support to beginning teachers in their first or second year of teaching. The mentor and new teacher relationship will engage teachers in a productive experience designed to enhance educators’ skills and increase the likelihood of their remaining in the teaching profession. Funding for this initiative was approved by the Governor and Legislature in the 2017-2018 State budget.
