The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) requires every school district in Illinois to have a mentoring program. The purpose of this program evaluation was to gauge the effectiveness of the mentoring program for first-year teachers in Northwest Suburban School District A. This document assesses the effectiveness of the mentoring program and how the first-year teaching staff in Northwest Suburban School District A felt about the mentoring supports. This program evaluation used quantitative and qualitative data including survey data from focus groups. The results from the data gathered revealed the vast majority of first-year teachers, mentors, and district administrators felt supported by the current state of the mentoring program, but there were areas that could be improved.
