With 8 years of program history, the time has come to redesign the Recruiting Washington Teachers (RWT) program in order to expand its impact and scale up the key components. To this end, the Professional Educator Standards Board is convening and facilitating a RWT redesign work group.
Our charge for the work group is to use their stakeholder input combined with lessons learned from the 8 years of RWT and other research to:
- Redesign the RWT program, building on strengths and strengthening weakness, to increase its impact
- Identify scalable components and best practices to expand the impact of RWT beyond the grant-funded sites to statewide
- Make policy recommendations geared at teacher preparation programs and the state legislature
