We provide opportunity and access for beginning teachers, mentors, and districts to maximize teacher effectiveness to ensure student learning.

Cardinal Stritch and area school districts in southeastern Wisconsin have joined together as a consortium to meet districts' mentoring and new teacher induction needs. The consortium provides its members with ongoing training and support to meet PI 34 requirements and collaboration to share ideas, resources, and expenses.

As a SEWNTP consortium member, you will have access to:

Research-based induction program models

  • Best practices in mentoring and teaching
  • Initial educator standards-based support seminars
  • Inter-district professional development plan (PDP) reviewer team database & PI 34 guidance
  • Customized district consultation
  • Inter-district networking
  • Mentor training and mentoring/Coaching Certificate program (Open to non-consortium members)
  • The SEWNTP Wikispace Page- an online platform to foster dialogue, discussion, and sharing of resources, across diverse districts, beyond the structured time of our offerings.

School districts can join at any point during the year at a prorated consortium fee. 

For more information or to join the consortium, contact Freda Russell at (414) 410-4735.
