DISTRICT AND UNION COLLABORATION

Our first NEST grant was awarded in 1998 by the Ohio Department of Education. It was written under the guidance of Dr. Susan Stevens. The Youngstown Education Association became a part of this grant by establishing union mentor positions. The YEA was also a part of the interview process for mentors. OEA provided various workshops for new teachers. We received grants from the ODE for four years. Grants are no longer available and the state pays $1100 to the district for each Entry-Level teacher.

'Partnerships in Pursuit of Quality Yield Success in the Classroom as well as on the Assembly Line'  

  • NEA-Saturn/UAW recognizes programs that:

  • Offer guidance to new teachers

  • Professional support

  • Personal growth

  • Increase teacher-retention rates in each of their districts

Youngstown, Ohio. One of the first districts to receive a state grant to establish a mentoring program, the Youngstown City School District continues to be a leader in establishing new teachers through its New Educators' Support Team (NEST). This program pairs mentors and first-year teachers by subject-area, grade level and building, allowing for a unique and successful sharing of ideas, materials and methods. Mentors, all members of the Youngstown Education Association, are provided with mentor salaries, class coverage, and professional development opportunities and supplies. In addition to achieving a 92% rate of retention for new teachers, the teamwork between union and district officials saw 27 out of 28 of last year's participants successfully pass Ohio's assessment performance test.
