This paper identifies the components of policy that promote high-quality mentoring practice. It reviews and analyzes policies, rules, and regulations regarding beginning teacher mentoring with a focus on special education. The conceptual framework includes policies at the federal, state, and local levels. Federal and state policies provide resources, guidelines, and standards; state policies require mentor training and evaluation. District policy may have the most impact on the nature and quality of mentoring.
