New Teacher Development


The site contains information that pertains to our New Teacher Program, Mentorships and Clinical Educator Program.

Pasco County Schools offers a two-year support program for our new teachers. The program kicks off with a week-long orientation to on-board all new teachers and support them with the Pasco Way of Work. This program also includes continued professional development throughout the school year, monthly newsletters, office hours to connect with new teacher team, mentorship, and school-wide supports.
