Legislative Authority

The NYS Mentor Teacher Internship Program was established in 1986 by amendment to Education Law 3033, Chapter 436. The New York State Legislature provides funding for the development and implementation of State-supported mentor teacher internship programs in local school districts and through boards of cooperative educational services (BOCES).

Purpose of Grant

These programs enable experienced teachers (mentors) in a district or BOCES to provide guidance and support to beginning teachers (interns) in their first and/or second year of teaching. It is anticipated that the induction provided will engage teachers in a productive and satisfying teaching and learning experience. Induction should be designed to enhance teachers’ skills and increase the likelihood of their remaining in the teaching profession.
