Mentor Policy

Jordan School District, in a desire to facilitate the professional growth, enculturation, and retention of its new teachers and to comply with Utah law, has a Mentor Teacher Program that requires school principals to assign their provisional teachers a trained mentor. A provisional teacher is a teacher who either holds a level one Utah license with less than three years of experience or a level two or level three teacher during their first year in Jordan School District. The mentor will sign a contract acknowledging their mentoring responsibilities. The Mentor Teacher Specialists are available for mentor training and consultation. Additional information about the program is available on this website and on the USBE’s EYE resources website.
