Mentoring the Pupil Services Initial Educators
The guide, Mentoring the Pupil Services Initial Educators, reflects the requirements for pupil services licensing found in the State of Wisconsin administrative rule PI 34 and includes recommended practices for mentoring pupil services professionals, including school counselors, nurses, psychologists, and social workers. PI 34 requires all initial educators to have a mentor who has been trained in the Wisconsin Standards appropriate to the license category. Even though pupil services staff are well prepared by strong professional training and experiences, new professionals face many challenges in launching their practices in the school setting. The information and suggested activities offered in this guide may be beneficial to both the initial educator and the mentor as their work together progresses. This guide is currently available online, and is also available in hard copy.
