NCTR Awarded SEED Grant by U.S. Department of Education

This morning, the U.S. Department of Education announced that NCTR has been awarded a $6.3 million, three-year federal Supporting Effective Educator Development (SEED) grant from the U.S. Department of Education.

Centering Equity, Building & Scaling Teacher Residencies (Centering Equity) builds upon NCTR’s 15 years of developing, supporting and scaling teacher residency programs focused on meeting the needs of teachers of color and serving the needs of underserved students. Centering Equity will develop and scale teacher residency programs for under-represented, diverse teacher candidates in Connecticut (Connecticut Teacher Residency Program), Delaware (Delaware State University Teacher Residency Program), North Carolina (Elizabeth City Pathways to Teach), Tennessee (Nashville Teacher Residency), and Virginia (Richmond Teacher Residency). NCTR will also partner with the Center for Racial Equity in Education (CREED) to provide NCTR’s Residency Foundations programming to historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in North Carolina with the goal of developing teacher residency programs at those HBCUs over the three-year grant term.  

Centering Equity is designed to: 

  1. Increase the number of effective and diverse teacher residents recruited, prepared, and retained in high-need schools and school districts and high-need grade spans and subjects;  
  2. Advance the quality of new teacher residency programs by engaging them in NCTR’s Residency Scaling Program, Residency Design Academy, Network Foundations, and Network; and build capacity and ensure the sustainability among the partners to fully implement, execute, and sustain their residency programs after the grant period ends; and 
  3. Advance the field by conducting a rigorous evaluation and disseminate findings to improve knowledge and understanding of systems, structures, and processes necessary to authentically scale and sustain teacher residency pathways for teachers of color in high-need areas.
NCTR is very pleased to partner with SRI International to conduct the evaluation of Centering Equity that will directly serve 625 diverse, under-represented teacher residents; and impact 35,219 students in 412 school districts and charter schools, of which 354 are Title I schools.
