In 1991 the Montana Board of Education approved funding for a pilot beginning teacher mentoring program. The original mentoring program proposal was developed by the state's Certification Standards and Practices Advisory Council.

The New Teacher Mentor Program was implemented in 1992 with pilots in 15 locations across Montana.
