The purpose of this project was to design and produce a teacher induction handbook for use by school administrators and first year teachers. The handbook was designed to assist high school administrators in conducting inservice training for beginning teachers intended to familiarize them with Toppenish High School. An effective teacher induction program is essential to retaining our best and brightest beginning teachers.
