FORT BEND ISD (Covering Fort Bend News) – The Fort Bend ISD Board of Trustees this week approved stipends for the expansion of the Master/Mentor Teaching Model to nine additional campuses next year.
The district implemented the Educators Dedicated to Growing Excellence (EDGE) instructional model during the 2016-17 school year at two elementary campuses to improve student achievement. One component of the program is Master and Mentor Teachers who provide job-embedded support and serve as liaisons between the campus and central office. Teachers designated as Master Teachers receive a stipend of $15,000. Mentor teachers receive a stipend of $9,000.
Campuses that will benefit from the Master/Mentor Teacher program include Marshall and Willowridge High Schools, McAuliffe and Missouri City Middle Schools; and Blue Ridge, Hunters Glen, E.A. Jones, Parks and Ridgegate Elementary Schools. The program is already in place at Ridgemont and Briargate Elementary Schools.
