The Zachary Community School System is dedicated to the success of all teachers.The Zachary Induction Program (ZIP) was developed to assist our new teachers through a comprehensive three-year induction program that supports the growth and professional development of new teachers. It provides professional support so that new teachers can continue to develop the content and pedagogical skills and knowledge that will support increased success as teachers in Zachary. By helping new teachers achieve their full potential, the ZIP supports Zachary’s vision of achieving high levels of student performance.
