Work and Learn

2019-2021 Work and Learn CohortWork and Learn Cohort

Yahooo!  ISD 917 has applied for, and been awarded, grant funding through the Minnesota Department of Education to provide our participants in the Work-and-Learn program with financial support as work towards teacher licensure! 

As a result of grant funding, we are able to provide thirteen candidates with $5,000 each to cover the cost of their spring semester tuition.  This funding will be going to each of the thirteen candidates that are currently working in ISD 917 or an ISD 917 member district and are continuing in the Work-and-Learn program.  We intend to apply for the same competitive grant next year.  We are particularly interested in increasing the racial and ethnic diversity of our teaching staff.  If you are interested in learning more, click on the Work-and-learn link above to learn more.  

This year thirteen districts applied for grow-your-own grants, and five districts were awarded funding. We deeply appreciate the candidates' focus on their professional growth and the support they provide our students.  

You are invited to join the next cohort, Earn while you Learn!
