New Educators

APS welcomes all T-scale new educators to our 2019 New Educator Orientation. This orientation is strongly encouraged and is for all educators who are new to APS, regardless of previous teaching experience.  The 2019 orientation will take place August 19th – 21st from 8:30 am – 3:30 pm each day at Wakefield High School.

Please note: This orientation is separate from the on-boarding process conducted by Human Resources. New T-scale employees that attend will be paid $17.40/hour. This orientation will include some required sessions dependent on your position as well as sessions that are choice options.

Below you will find a schedule of the sessions from August 19-21. We are holding our Festival of the Minds professional learning conference concurrently with New Hire Orientation.  For some positions, there may be time built into the schedule to attend sessions of your choice. You can find the program of offerings here.
