Student achievement has become a critical concern in education since the passage of the No Child Left Behind Legislation of 2002. At the same time, the retention rate of beginning teachers is 50% within the first five years. This low retention rate affects student achievement, building initiatives and districts' finances. Research indicates that comprehensive induction programs can raise the rate of retention of beginning teachers. One component of a comprehensive induction program is site based professional development. This project, with the use of a PowerPoint presentation, is an introduction to site based staff development for beginning teachers. The target audience for this presentation is administrators and instructional coaches.
