We are always excited to welcome new staff members to our Valley Stream 30 family. We also believe in providing them with the necessary support when making the transition to a new school district, regardless of how much experience an individual may have. We provide a mentor to all new teachers in our district. Our mentors attend a training program prior to being appointed as mentors.
Prior to the start of each school year we hold a New Teacher Orientation. This multi-day program provides new teachers an opportunity to learn more about the Valley Stream 30 community, connect with staff members in the district and an introduction to our curricular programming. Throughout the school our district offers various professional development opportunities to further develop staff members. You can learn more about our professional development offering by reviewing our district's Professional Development and Mentoring plan, located under the resources tab on the district plans page.
