THEME: Grow Your Own Presentation

DESCRIPTION: Learn how CSI’s Non-Traditional Educator Preparation Program (CSI-NTEPP) is creatively and rigorously preparing the next generation of exceptional teachers while easing the burden on districts and charters during this unprecedented teacher shortage. With a generous grant from the Idaho Department of Labor and the Idaho Workforce Development Council, and through partnership with TeachForward and the Idaho State Board of Education, CSI-NTEPP was able to develop a competency based non-traditional program that immediately places teachers of record in the classroom through a residency style model. This Grow Your Own approach with a strong emphasis on flexibility while maintaining rigor and best practices, aligns with the greatest needs of communities and districts across the state; to develop, retain, and certify local candidates. We invite you to learn from our trials and successes and to join in the conversation as thinking partners.
