Information on the Certificated Staff Mentoring Program (CSMP).
The CSMP is now included in the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), authorized by the 2013-14 Budget Act, in place of most previously existing K–12 state funding streams.

Funding for this program will now be determined at the local level. The following information about CSMP may still be helpful to local educators.

Introduction

Senate Bill 1209 (Chapter 517, Statutes of 2006 and Education Code Section 44560-02) established the Certificated Staff Mentoring Program (CSMP) for teachers. This program was developed to encourage experienced teachers to teach in staff priority schools and to assist teacher interns and/or beginning teachers during induction and first years of teaching. Eligible teachers must meet the program’s criteria and agree to teach in a staff priority school for a minimum of five years and agree to work with no less than one and no more than five interns and/or beginning teachers during any one of the five years.

This program is included in the Tier III Categories for the flexible funding provisions included in SBX3 4. Please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for this program by accessing the California Department of Education's Education Budget Web page
