Homegrown Teachers: Planning Incentives to Recruit and Retain Teachers in Rural Counties

Catawba Valley Community College
Program Area:
Open Grants Program
County of Applicant:

Every year in NC, there are 9,000 teacher vacancies in the public school system. And with only 3,000 students graduating from college each year with teaching degrees, the state is becoming more and more dependent on outside recruitment to fill the void. The ultimate goal of this project is to attack the critical teacher shortage in NC by creating a community college focused model based on the successful North Carolina Teaching Fellows Program. The purpose of this grant is to develop a demonstration project for teacher recruitment and retention in rural counties.
