Texas Based US PREP Coalition Members named as Vetted Teacher Residencies by Texas Education Agency

We’re excited to announce that 10 US PREP Coalition Members in Texas were awarded the distinction of “Vetted Teacher Residency” by the Texas Education Agency. Through a rigorous application process, each program was selected because they offer high-quality, yearlong, teacher residency programs where a teacher candidate is paired with an experienced, highly effective mentor teacher for a full-year of clinical training/co-teaching in a K-12 classroom (minimum of 3 days per week for full year). Residencies take place at the undergraduate and post-baccalaureate level. In some cases, residents receive a stipend during the year-long residency.  The Texas-based US PREP Coalition members include:

As a result of this distinction, partner school districts can support paid residencies using ESSER funds, specifically the Texas COVID Learning Acceleration Supports (TCLAS), for the next 3 school years. The US PREP Coalition remains committed to reallocation and reinvestment to sustainably fund paid teacher residencies beyond this timeline to build the strongest teacher pipelines possible for Texas’s PK-12 students.
