These 9 Culturally Relevant and Sustaining Education (CR-SE) Competencies for Pennsylvania Educators include key definitions, indicators, and reflexive questions to ensure that all educators are equipped to meet the needs of all students. A full toolkit is forthcoming!
This toolkit identifies 5 strategies for recruiting high school students into teaching. Case studies that describe collaborations between Pennsylvania school districts and teacher education programs are included.
Mentorship Toolkit (forthcoming)
Mentorship is an essential strategy for any recruitment or retention initiative. This toolkit provides background on the essential elements of mentorship and case studies from Pennsylvania programs that support the mentorship of potential future teachers as well as pre-service and in-service teachers of color.
Checklists and tables in this toolkit guide school and district leaders through assessment of the policies and practices within their buildings that impact the willingness of teachers of color to stay in the classroom and the profession.
