Wilson County Schools is committed to providing a superior level of support for its beginning teachers.  We provide continuous support to our beginning teachers through one-on-one mentoring at the school level. We also provide assistance through district-level group meetings and staff development. Our program is comprehensive and includes a mentor component, orientation, induction activities, and targeted training.

The Beginning Teacher Support Program (BTSP) is a 3-year period of support and assessment for novice teachers. At the end of this period, the teacher is granted or denied a Standard Professional 2 (SP2) License based on the following criteria:

  • The individual must have 3 years of successful teaching experience, at least one of which is in North Carolina.
  • The individual must have the LEA recommendation.
  • The individual must complete a minimum of twelve beginning teacher activities prescribed by the LEA.
  • The individual must be deemed at least proficient in all standards on the summary rating in order to be recommended for an SP2 license. If an SP2 License is granted, it is issued with a five-year renewal cycle.
