Teachers new to Henry County report in late July to take part in a special introduction to the school system and community. Through this program, new teachers are given the opportunity to meet Board members, administrators, fellow teachers and community members. The week's schedule of activities includes presentations by system's curriculum specialists, a dynamic keynote speaker, and a welcome luncheon sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce's Education Committee.
Follow-up meetings are held on a monthly basis throughout the year at each local school to address topics specific to the school and/or that are not covered in the TIP program. The new teachers also work closely with mentor teachers who help them organize materials and their classrooms.
- To develop an understanding of the beliefs and values of Henry County Schools and the school community
