Right Needs Now Fund (December 2018 – March 2022)
Right Needs Now Fund COVID-19 Response:
The Seattle Teacher Residency recruits, trains, places, and supports excellent, committed teachers in SPS Title I schools. Graduates reflect the diversity of SPS students.
Research shows that teacher diversity has a direct positive impact on student success. STR plays a critical role in diversifying SPS’s teaching workforce. Residency participants commit to teaching at a Title 1 school in SPS for five years after graduation. This innovative program and partnership created a new pipeline of teachers who more closely reflect the diversity of the students they teach.
