RESC MTR Alliance
The Regional Education Service Center Minority Teacher Recruiting (RESC MTR) Alliance was established by a Connecticut General Assembly statute and is a collaborative of the six Connecticut Regional Education Service Centers and the public districts they serve. With funding from the General Assembly, the RESC MTR Alliance receives allocations as directed from the state Department of Education.
Our stated purpose under the General Assembly statute is:
- To encourage minority middle- and secondary-school students to attend institutions of higher education and enter teacher preparation programs.
- To recruit minority students attending institutions of higher education to enroll in teacher preparation programs and pursue teacher careers.
- To recruit and retain minority teachers in Connecticut schools.
