Grantee Name:University of Arkansas-Monticello
Project Director:Donna R. Hunnicutt 870-460-1062

This project aims to recruit and retain one cohort of 60 new teacher candidates per year. The project focuses primarily on the recruitment of recent college graduates and individuals from the business and industry sectors, as well as the military. Individuals with bachelor's degrees also are recruited to teach in south Arkansas schools. This fast-track transition to teaching program leads to licensure within requirements determined by the state of Arkansas. Web-based courses and websites are used to facilitate communication, and a mentoring program assists in the retention of candidates.
