Important Questions a Candidate Should Ask a Designated Agency/ Alternative Teacher Program

Here are some key questions you should ask a Designated Agency to help you select the right program for your needs:

  1. Do I need to find my own job in a public school or district? Or, will the program assist with placement in a classroom/school?
  2. Will I earn a salary or be compensated for my role as a teacher in this program?
  3. How much does the program cost?
  4. Are there any health benefits associated with this position?
  5. Does this program result in a master’s degree?
  6. Is there a service commitment attached to this position?
  7. Can I complete an induction program at the same time, which would allow me to apply for my professional license after I apply for my initial license?
  8. May I change content areas if I decide I would rather teach something else?
