Butler County School System believes highly skilled teachers are one of the single most important influences on student success. In addition, we believe teacher training is of paramount importance in strengthening our educational foundation, and increasing teacher retention. Butler County’s Beginning Educator Support Team (B.E.S.T.) was created to provide new teachers with a comprehensive and ongoing teacher induction program to help them become highly skilled and effective. Through this program teachers will receive support from peer and instructional coaches and be provided professional development throughout the first two years.
