RURAL SCHOOL TEACHER TALENT GRANT
The Rural School Teacher Talent Pilot Program was implemented by the legislature to increase the exposure that teacher candidates and student teachers have working in a rural school with the hope that more new teachers will consider working in a rural school (Wis. Stat. 115.423).
This program is facilitated by CESA 11 to coordinate practicum, student teacher, and internship placements in rural districts. These pre-service candidates may receive a stipend for working in a rural school, and student teachers are eligible to receive either a housing stipend to live in the rural district during student teaching or travel reimbursement if commuting from their campus.
