Transformation Waco schools to invest in master’s degrees for future teachers

The five Waco ISD Transformation Zone schools. 

We’re excited to see all the progress in our five Transformation Zone schools! 

“Starting next month, Waco Independent School District plans to recruit future educators who still need their teaching certificates for a program that will allow them to earn their certificates and, eventually, a master’s degree, all on the district’s tab.

In January, the Transformation Waco board of trustees approved the posting of a request for proposals for a contractor to provide a combined master’s degree and alternative certification program, which is a nontraditional path to earn a teaching certificate that allows college graduates to teach while completing the certification requirements. The pilot program will be restricted to Waco ISD’s five Transformation Waco schools.”
