Jacksonville Teacher Residency

The Jacksonville Teacher Residency Program is a medical residency-style program that takes high-achieving college graduates with STEM majors and puts them in high-need schools for a total of four years: one year as a resident teacher with an assigned mentor, and three years as a teacher of record in one of the 36 schools in the feeder patterns targeted by the Quality Education for All Fund.

In Fall 2013, Urban Teacher Residency United began working with Duval County Public Schools to provide technical assistance to prepare to launch the program in summer 2014.

The JTR is the Florida’s first urban teacher residency program, and is a partnership between Duval County Public Schools and the University of North Florida (UNF). Recruits will serve students in five of the schools identified as the focus of the QEA Fund starting in fall 2014.
