About Austin ISD
Austin ISD serves very diverse communities throughout Travis County.
Every year, Austin ISD hires a number of first year teachers to service students across the district. Induction support is critical to ensure that new teachers continue to grow in their practice and feel supported by the district. Additionally, induction support to new teachers is critical to ensure positive student outcomes. With this in mind, the University of Texas at Austin and Austin ISD have partnered up in order to support these new teachers through mentorship, online professional development resources, and research to inform best practices related to induction. UT Austin has committed to providing:
- 25 new to profession teachers with a coach
- Coaching support using the Coaching with CARE framework
- Research-based online resources supporting teacher’s continued professional growth
- Additional tools to develop teachers into strong teacher leaders
