Goal: To address critical teaching shortage areas and improve teacher effectiveness in the KVEC/ARI region.
The ARI Teacher Tuition Assistance Program is a RTTT-D funded project that targets teachers who are completing, or plan to complete, course work to secure a degree or certification in a critical shortage teaching area, secure dual credit certification, or pursue National Board Certification. All applicants must meet the ARI eligibility requirements. ARI provides reimbursement of up to $1,500.00 per semester upon successful completion of course(s). Teachers may apply for funding in consecutive years.
Any teacher in the ARI service area may apply for the teacher tuition grant. To date KVEC/ARI has awarded 281 teacher tuition scholarships.
