The Richard W Riley College of Education at Winthrop University has been awarded a 3.8 million dollar Teacher Quality Partnership federal grant from the US Department of Education to help with teacher retention in 3 rural state school districts.

The NetSERVE grant will establish a teacher residency program over 5 years to prepare individuals with a bachelor’s degree to become teachers through a graduate Master of Arts in Teaching program.

The program includes partnerships with Chester, Chesterfield and Fairfield County along with several organizations.  5,300 teachers left their jobs in 2018 with only 1,600 new educators prepared to enter the profession.
