Teacher recruitment and retention is a challenge for the state of New York. However, it is using a wide range of approaches to recruit and retain highly qualified teachers in hard-to-staff schools and subject areas and schools serving large percentages of minority, low income families.

Here are a few of the state’s efforts:

a. Outreach and Information
  • Pathways to teaching brochure
  • Call to teaching forums
  • Mailing to over 70,000 individuals with expired provisional or temporary licenses
  • Recruiting teachers from minority communities
  • Building an enhanced website
  • Ongoing partnership with schools and LEA leaders, Deans of Schools of Education, the Commissioner’s Advisory Council on Higher Education, the State Professional Standards and Practices Board of Teaching, and other groups

b. State Resources
  • Teachers of Tomorrow (TOT)
  • Teacher Opportunity Corps (TOC)
  • Federal Resources
  • Troops to Teacher Program
  • Discretionary funds from the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act  (IDEA)
  • Federal grants for up to $3.5 million to expand capacity in ATC programs for hard-to-staff schools and subject areas in New York City
