7 Miss. Code. R. § 3-67.1 - University Assisted Teacher Recruitment and Retention Grant Program
Current through April 7, 2022
The goal of the University Assisted Teacher Recruitment and Retention Grant Program, as mandated in House Bill 609 (1998 Legislative Session), shall be to attract qualified teachers to those geographical areas of the state where there exists a critical shortage of teachers by making available scholarships to persons working towards a Master of Education degree or an Educational Specialist degree at an institution of higher learning whose teacher education program is approved by the State Board of Education.
The Mississippi Department of Education is authorized and directed to implement the requirements of House Bill 609, including, but not limited to, the promulgation of rules and regulations necessary for the proper administration of the University Assisted Teacher Recruitment and Retention Grant Program.
A single university or college shall be selected by the RFP process and shall be responsible for the administration of the University Assisted Teacher Recruitment and Retention Grant Program. That selected university or college shall be responsible for the implementation of program guidelines and the delivery of services under the grant. The selected university or college shall report directly to the Mississippi Teacher Center to ensure the program meets the overall goal of recruitment and retention of teachers for geographic areas of the state where teacher shortages exist as designated by the State Board of Education. The selected university or college shall comply with rules and regulations as stated below.
