In 2005 CSTP launched an initiative, called the New Teacher Alliance, to further the work of new teacher support in Washington State. The work, funded by the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, focuses on keeping our new teachers in our schools.
The New Teacher Alliance is a three-year grant that provides assistance to the districts as they use the Effective Support for New Teachers in Washington State to improve the help they provide to their new teachers. The New Teacher Alliance consists of seven districts and two Educational Service Districts representing the variety of locales, student populations and district size throughout the state. The districts include: Cle Elum-Roslyn, Highline, Mary M. Knight, Raymond, Rochester, Spokane and Toppenish. The Educational Service Districts involved are ESD 105 in Yakima and ESD 113 in Olympia.
