What is ATIP?

Mentoring
  • The Antioch Teacher Induction Program (formerly entitled “BTSA”) is a State-approved Induction program and offers a two-year job-embedded professional development experience to first- and second-year general ed and Special Education teachers.

  • I have been teaching for 3 years, is there a way I can fast track through ATIP?

    Posted by:

    The ATIP program provides an option for exceptional and experienced candidates to apply for "Early Completion Option."  The application process will be discussed in length at Orientation and the Program Director will provide ongoing support to all candidates completing the application process as requested.  Those who apply will have their portfolios reviewed by the ATIP Advisory Committee and based on their recommendation, candidates may be enrolled in a 12 month program, an 18 month program or required to complete the full two years.

  • I am an experienced teacher who would like to serve a mentor in the program-how do I proceed?

    Posted by:

    The ATIP program requires all mentors to have taught for a minimum of four years prior to applying for a mentoring position.  Mentors shall apply through Edjoin.org and have their administrator's recommendation to participate.  Once a teacher has applied for the position, the Program Director will conduct an observation of the applicant's teaching and then make a recommendation to the ATIP Advisory Committee to allow the applicant to enter the mentoring program.  If approved, the mentor will then complete a minimum of 24 hours of mentoring training that is focused on Adult Learning Theory, mentoring skills, and induction program components.  After training is completed, the mentor will be officially entered into the pool of mentors and when a need arises, the Director will match the mentor to the new enrollee.
