Local Alternative Teacher Preparation Program

The CCRESA, partnering with RTI,  has been hard at work finalizing details for the LATP Program set to kick off this summer.  This 3 year program is a collaborate effort of 15 of our member districts to implement an intense, accelerated teacher licensure program.  First or second year lateral entry middle and high school teachers are eligible to participate.  Participants will teach in their school districts and complete course work simultaneously. The vision of this program is to grow a high-quality teacher pipeline while raising the bar for teacher preparation.
