NCSD receives grant for teacher training


North Clackamas Schools, in partnership with two other school districts and Portland State University, was awarded funding from the Chalkboard Project to develop a Bridge Program, which will mentor student teachers, new teachers and students who want to enter education.

Each partnership will receive up to $230,000 a year for three years.

A strong focus of the grant will help foster bilingual and ethnically diverse candidates for local schools.

The Bridge Program partnership is one of three TeachOregon partnerships chosen for this grant.

TeachOregon brings together school districts and their community college and university partners to strengthen teacher preparation.
