PALNI Onboarding Manual: New Director Mentor Program

New Director Mentor Program


When a new director at a PALNI school is hired, the Staffing Capacity and Coordination Committee will convene a meeting as soon as possible. The purpose of this meeting will be to identify individual(s) who could serve as a mentor for the new director. Once a possible mentor(s) is identified, the committee will contact the candidate to see if he or she is willing and able to serve as a mentor.
