Welcome to the Beginning Teacher Support Program!
Brunswick County Schools is committed to supporting novice teachers. The Beginning Teacher Program begins with a 3-day professional development designed to promote strong instructional and classroom practices. Each Beginning Teacher is provided an on-site mentor to support their professional growth. In addition, each school site has a site coordinator who organizes monthly site specific growth opportunities.
Beginning with the 2013-2014 school year, BCS digitized much of its BTSP program. BT1s who are unable to attend the face-to-face induction held in August complete the training online. In addition, BT records are maintained online. After several iterations, the BTSP now uses Google Classroom to organize the BT portfolio and for communication. BTs should see their school BT Coordinator for information on accessing your school's BT Google Classroom.
