With a new school year almost here, approximately 400 new teachers will begin work in VBCPS. Instrumental in their first year success is the Department of Professional Growth and Innovation (PGI), whose role is to aid in leadership development, career advancement and new employee support. One way they provide that support is through the Teacher Orientation and Continuous Learning Institute, a four day event designed to help integrate new educations into the teaching community. Another is through in-school support by pairing new teachers with seasoned educators. Leading this charge is Compass Keeper Bevin Reinen.
