Retaining Teachers Grant Program
About the Grant Program
The Retaining Teachers Grant Program was created by HB18-1412 and provides school districts, BOCES, and charter schools the opportunity to implement strategies to improve their ability to successfully retain teachers. This grant program does not include funds for teacher recruitment activities. For more information on grant funds available for teacher recruitment, read about the Quality Teacher Recruitment Program and the Stipends for Rural Educators opportunities offered through the Colorado Center for Rural Education.
CDE submits an annual statutorily required report to the State Board of Education, the House and Senate Education Committees of the General Assembly, and the Governor's Office. These reports can be accessed here.
