PARTNERSHIPS FOR INNOVATIVE TROOPS TO TEACHERS PROGRAMS TO EXPAND PENNSYLVANIA'S TEACHER WORKFORCE IN SUBJECT SHORTAGE AREAS

 
The Partnerships for Innovative Troops to Teachers Programs to Expand Pennsylvania's Teacher Workforce in Subject Shortage Areas application guidelines are established to provide direction to applicants interested in implementing an innovative, alternative post-baccalaureate program to prepare cohorts of eligible veterans to teach in one or more of Pennsylvania's subject shortage areas as a result of their completing a Pennsylvania instructional certification program.  Pennsylvania's goal is to recruit at least 50 veterans to enroll in alternative post-baccalaureate certification pathways created under a Pennsylvania Troops to Teachers (TTT) grant and to be hired in a high-need school to teach in critical shortage area.
 
Applications submitted in response to these guidelines are limited to statewide partnerships aimed at nurturing and sustaining high-quality relationships among and between teacher preparation entities and local education agencies (LEAs) in shortage areas, listed in the Guidelines.
