Teacher Preparation Pipeline

Attracting and keeping quality teachers in Sacramento classrooms is a constant challenge. The region is facing a teacher shortage that is exacerbated due to access and/or cost of teacher preparation programs, teachers retiring, crowded classes, low perceived teacher salary, and need for specialized teachers in STEM, math, science and special education. Shortages are highest in the districts’ most under-resourced schools. This team will be working with regional partners including Breakthrough Sacramento to help guide students who hope to become teachers beginning in the 6th grade through the completion of their credential. This team hopes to develop a sustainable pipeline of teachers to support the region. A highly competent teacher workforce is the necessary foundation to improving the region’s educational outcomes in K-12 schools.
