High School Prep Programs

Many of Washington’s finest teachers felt their vocational calling years before they actually enrolled in a teacher certification program.

Washington recognizes this calling with the Recruiting Washington Teachers (RWT) program aimed to “grow our own” diverse group of future teachers who more closely reflect the population of today’s children and youth.  

RWT grant funding supports the recruitment and preparation of a diverse group of high school students for future careers as educators in the teacher shortage areas of Mathematics, Science, Special Education, Early Childhood Education (P-3), English Language Learner, and Bilingual Education.
