Mansfield ISD KEEPS (Knowledge-based Encounters Ensuring Professional Success), a Mentoring and Induction Program, was developed in 2002 to provide the support necessary for the growth and development of teachers. The program serves MISD as both a recruiting and retention tool.
It is the goal of Mansfield ISD to attract, support and retain the very best educators. The KEEPS Program provides ongoing knowledge-based encounters that saturate incoming teachers with a network of support to foster both personal and professional success.
As part of the Vision for Excellence inherent in Mansfield ISD, KEEPS has been instrumental in providing a comprehensive support system for novice teachers commensurate with their level of need.
