The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia has launched the Teacher Preparation Recruitment Initiative also known as the Destination Teaching Program, which seeks to increase the number and diversity of highly qualified teachers prepared through the University System of Georgia institutions. The program is targeted at preparing second career candidates (including paraprofessionals) to become teachers in high-need schools. The following institutions will be participating in the pilot program: Albany State University, Armstrong Atlantic State University, Georgia State University, Georgia Southern University, East Georgia College, Georgia Southwestern State University, Valdosta State University, Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College, Waycross College, and South Georgia College.  

 

The Destination Teaching Program will offer service repayable scholarship loans through funding from two grants from the U.S. Department of Education.  The maximum total loan amount available through September 30, 2006 to a recipient, will be $5,000. Within six months upon completion of the program, the individual will become a teacher and then repay the scholarship by working in a high-need school in a high-need school district. 

 

GSFC will be the disbursement agent for the Teacher Quality Enhancement Program (TQE). GSFC will administer the Transition to Teaching Program (TTT).
