What is “New Teacher Academy”?
New Teacher Academy is a four-day event. Sessions will be hosted by district specialists. School-based sessions will also be available. Academy sessions will focus on research-based practices, including effective instructional strategies and classroom management. The exact format of this event will be determined at a later date and will be shared with participants. Participation is not mandatory, but is highly recommended. Because this event takes place prior to the contracted school year, most participating educators will receive a stipend for attending sessions.
Pre-registration is required.
All educators attending New Teacher Academy will need to bring their HCS issued devices to New Teacher Academy. Plan to pick up your assigned laptop and docking station during the week of July 18th - July 21st between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm from the technology department located in Building C at the District Office.
If you have specific questions about the pick-up process for devices, please contact Missy Johnson at: Mjohnson006@horrycountyschools.net. Devices will be needed for New Teacher Academy.
