Site Administrator Responsibilities

How Site Administrators Help New Teachers

Site Administrators working with the PYLUSD Induction Program agree to:



Time Management

  • Limit extracurricular duties for both the Candidate(s) [new teachers] and Mentor(s), scheduling common prep time (whenever possible) at their request

  • Provide release-time to both Candidate(s) and Mentor(s) for observations and/or professional development

  • Avoid scheduling meetings/school events during mandatory induction district-wide meetings (e.g., Colloquium, Advice, Assistance and Collaboration Meetings, Mentor Training and Collaboration Meetings, required professional development, etc.)


Instructional Leadership

  • Conduct initial Site Orientation for new Candidate(s) to inform them about site resources, personnel, health and safety, legal obligations and special education policies and procedures

  • Help the Candidate(s) at your site to complete school and district forms, as needed

  • Monitor and observe Candidate(s) frequently to ensure their success

  • Participate in Triad Meetings with your Candidate(s) and Mentor(s) to discuss the Candidate’s progress in overall instruction and their induction requirements



  • Allocate resources to support Candidates' professional growth (e.g., collaboration, grade level/content area teaming, technology, materials, etc.)


Participation in Induction

  • Support Candidates’ Individualized Learning Plans by providing assistance if/when requested

  • Participate in all evaluation surveys throughout the year

  • Meet with the Induction Coordinator to learn about the program and analyze evaluation data

  • Help recruit, select, and match quality Mentors to work with Candidates at your site

  • Respect and understand the confidentiality embedded in the PYLUSD Induction program (the process of Induction, including the evidence that each Candidate collects and conversations with the Mentor, are formative, not evaluative, in nature)
