Partnership for the Retention of Education Professionals (PREP)

The purpose of the Partnership for the Partnership for the Retention of Education Professionals (PREP) is to bolster collaborative efforts in beginning teacher support. The project involves a partnership with five (5) area school districts:

  • Anson County Schools

  • Cumberland County Schools

  • Montgomery County Schools

  • Richmond County Schools

  • Scotland County Schools

This grant, supported by the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation, supports several strands of work: (a) district leadership development that focuses on best practices in mentoring and program accountability; (b) support in mentor training and development; and (c) direct support to beginning teachers. A key strand of this grant is the LEA Specialist, a part-time position that partnering districts can utilize throughout the year to carry out special projects.
