New Educators

Each year, APS welcomes all T-scale new educators to a New Educator Orientation held at a school site within Arlington Public Schools. Orientation typically takes place on the three days prior to Pre-Service for all educators. Orientation for the 2019-2020 school year will be August 19 – August 21 from 8:30am – 3:30pm each day. This event is strongly encouraged and is for all educators new to APS, regardless of experience level.  New educators that attend will be paid $17.40 per hour.

The orientation includes required sessions as well as some choice options, dependent on your position. The Festival of Minds professional learning conference is held concurrently with New Educator Orientation, which provides for several additional learning opportunities throughout the three day orientation.
