COLUMBIA CITY — For the third year in a row, Whitley County Consolidated Schools will be offering teacher training for autistic students, implementing a strategy teachers can follow to better meet the needs of students.
After receiving a two year grant, WCCS has already been working with the Indiana Resource Center for Autism, who provides trainers and expert consultants to schools in the state, and this year WCCS’ teachers will receive training again using the special education grant dollars.

TEACHERS: Mentoring gives new educators support

August 11, 2012


COLUMBIA CITY — Teachers who will enter the Whitley County Consolidated Corporation as first-year teachers in August will receive mentoring through the district’s New Teacher program.
Research shows educators are more likely to stay in education if they are supported or mentored during their first two years on the job, according to Whitley County Consolidated School (WCCS) Dr. Patricia O’Connor.
“It’s a coaching model to really help our new teachers,” said O’Connor.
