Clear Horizons Mentor/Induction Program

Mentor/Induction Program

 

Mentoring For Teachers:

Each new faculty member in Clear Creek ISD is provided a mentor teacher.  The mentor helps the new teacher with the district curriculum, instructional strategies, classroom management, district policies, and campus practices.  A mentor is also assigned to each experienced teacher who is new to the district.

 

Mentoring  For Students:

  • Clear Horizons students start each school day with a half hour in  Advisory.  These daily small group mentoring sessions are facilitated by a faculty member who provides intentional guidance regarding character education, Core Values, personal goal setting, time management, academic support, and success in a collegiate setting.

  • Clear Horizons utilizes a Student Ambassador program to help support new Coyotes.  The Ambassadors are older Clear Horizons students who have been on campus for at least one year and who were selected by a faculty committee for consistently demonstrating leadership, scholarship, and citizenship.  Their first function is to build relationships with the incoming freshmen during their two-day summer induction, called Coyote Camp.  The Student Ambassadors maintain these relationships with the freshmen throughout the year to support the newest members of our learning community,

  • Every student at Clear Horizons participates in two semester-long internships with a mentor from our community business partners.  Students participate in internships during the spring of their junior year and the fall of their senior year to experience first-hand the engaging world of work, to build valuable professional networks, and to prepare for their launch into a four year university with a specific career interest to pursue.
