Teacher Apprenticeship: A New Model for Innovative Districts to Fill Classroom Vacancies

teacher apprenticeship program participant reading to a group of students
With traditional teacher education programs graduating fewer newly certified teachers each year, innovative district leaders are creating alternative pathways to attract highly-qualified, committed educators to their classrooms. BloomBoard connects school districts with higher education institutions offering apprenticeship-based degree programs to advance the paraprofessionals already working in schools. Join us for a conversation with district leaders who are bringing teacher apprenticeship-based programs into their districts to build skills, remove traditional barriers to advancement and retention, and become employers of choice. You will learn:
  • About teacher apprenticeship—an innovative alternative to the traditional teacher education model.
  • How apprenticeship-based teacher education can help districts reduce staff vacancies and grow the existing workforce.
  • How this alternative model increases staff diversity and can benefit educators, administrators, learners, and the wider community.
Featured speakers:
  • Dr. Sara Dail, Assistant Superintendent for Sterling Public Schools, IL
  • Shannon Allman, Director of HR for Madison Consolidated Schools, IN
  • Ray Pinder, Assistant Superintendent for Hernando County School District, FL
  • Jason Lange, Co-Founder and President of BloomBoard
