- The mentor has various duties they need to do throughout the school year.
- The mentor does significant support at the beginning of the school year, but fades throughout the school year. For example, the first IEP meeting of the year the mentor would sit with the teacher and tell them what to say as they call the parent to set up the meeting. Then the mentor would run the first IEP meeting for the new staff with the new staff member in attendance. At the next meeting the new staff would run the meeting, but the mentor would attend to support the new staff member.
- The mentor is available at least one time per week to support the new staff.
- At least once a month the mentor and new staff meet to discuss specifics; the mentor and mentee fill out a survey that is sent from the New Staff Coordinator to help facilitate discussion.
