Interested in Earning a Teaching Credential and a Master's Degree?

CSU, Chico’s School of Education announces an opportunity for interested teacher candidates made possible through project Co-STARS:  Collaboration for Students and Teacher Achievement in Rural Schools, a Teacher Quality Partnership grant funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Innovation and Improvement.  
 
The Rural Teacher Residency (RTR) pathway is an 18-month program leading to an initial credential and a Master’s degree in education for candidates who are interested in working in high-need rural schools. Coursework begins in June of each year prior to a full-time academic year residency in a rural school. During the school year, teacher residents will continue their coursework, engage in intensive daily collaboration with their assigned Mentor Teachers, participate as members of professional learning communities at their school sites, and engage in site-based inquiry leading to completion of a master’s project.  Additionally, the Co-STARS grant provides an option to receive up to $11,000 of stipend funds, with an agreement to teach in a high-need school district upon program completion.
