Resources for Missouri Teacher Recruitment & Retention
Recruiting potential teachers and stopping the exodus of current teachers is critical to solving the teacher shortage crisis. (Carroll, 2007; Ingersoll, 2003; Podolsky et al, 2016)
The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education Office of Educator Quality is offering grants for teacher recruitment and retention to all Missouri school districts and charter schools. Teacher education grants are also being offered to Missouri educator preparation programs and colleges supporting teacher program enrollment.
