Educator Recruitment and Retention

Educators play a crucial role in the life of every child.  Research confirms that teachers are the single most important school-based influence on how well students learn.  "Educator quality is the single most important school-level contributor to student learning and achievement" (Leithwood, Louis, Anderson, & Wahlstrom, 2004; Rivkin, Hanushek, & Kain, 2005). 


The 2022-23 application for the Educator Recruitment and Retention Program is open through April, 2023. Under this program, qualified applicants can apply for up to $10,000 in one-time financial assistance toward their educator preparation program costs if they commit to teaching in a shortage area for three years.

Our team provides service to education candidates by providing preparation, licensing and placement assistance to current and future educators.  Links to details regarding professional development opportunities, including Licensing 101, Educator Boot Camp and Substitute Boot Camp, can be found below.
