Abstract: This paper is a review and analysis of current mentoring practices in public school systems. More specifically, our research centres around comparing and contrasting existing mentorship models and then analyzing how these may or may not relate to the current practices of a school district in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. The research involves a systematic literature review and interviews with educational experts who hold district leadership positions. These two components identified a number of overarching themes of mentoring programs: structure and format of programs, collaboration and reciprocity of relationships, support for teachers, mandated and voluntary enrolment, and resource allocation.
