Annual Induction and Mentoring Report

Completing the 2018 District Induction & Mentoring Report

Local Induction and Mentoring Reports are due July 31, 2018. Reports are required of traditional school districts, Horace Mann charter schools, and educational collaboratives, and are optional for Commonwealth charter schools.

On May 15, the Department sent a link to the online reporting form to each district’s and collaborative’s designated induction and mentoring contact. If your organization did not receive this email, please ensure that your mentoring and induction contact information is up-to-date. This is the responsibility of your local directory administrator.

If you wish to prepare your report responses before using the online form, a Word document Download Word Document with all report items is available.

Please contact with any questions.


The Induction and Mentoring District Report is intended to provide DESE with a broad understanding of the induction and mentoring activities in place to support educators across the Commonwealth. The annual report requirements and components are outlined in 603 CMR 7.12(3).

The goals of the annual report are to:

  1. Encourage district reflection on current induction and mentoring practices so districts may identify strengths and areas for further development;
  2. Provide DESE with data so the agency can identify promising induction and mentoring practices to share across districts and understand areas where the agency can provide additional supports and resources to districts.

To learn about how these requirements differ from before 2015, read our Frequently Asked Questions.

ESE's Use of the Data

DESE intends to aggregate the data from each district and publish a brief annual report to highlight trends in induction and mentoring programs across the state as well as to disseminate promising practices to support districts in learning from one another.

DESE will continue to reflect on the format of the report and data elements included. Please direct any questions, comments, or suggestions to
