New undergraduate program looks to recruit & retain teachers in the Treasure State

A new undergraduate program in Montana is hoping to recruit, prepare, support and retain K-12 teachers in the Treasure State.

The new program will provide a stipend for a full-year in-classroom experience, possible district-provided housing and teacher leader coaching a release from the Office of Public Instruction says.

“Solving Montana’s teacher retention and recruitment challenge demand innovation. More flexibilities are needed now more than ever to place quality teachers in our classrooms,” Superintendent Arntzen said. “The Montana Teacher Residency Demonstration Project is one such solution.”
