Flint Community Schools Provides An Innovative Alternative Pathways Program for Aspiring Teachers and opportunities for expanding certifications for Existing Teachers.

Flint Community Schools has an Alternative Pathways Program for aspiring and existing teachers, a visionary project designed to transform the teacher recruitment and training landscape. This program is a beacon of hope for individuals aspiring to enter the teaching profession, particularly those who have faced systemic barriers in achieving their educational and professional goals. But it also provides our existing teaching staff certification opportunities to expand their teaching career!

At the heart of the Alternative Pathways Program is a commitment to equity and accessibility. Our mission is to open doors for future educators who might have thought those doors were closed to them. The opportunities provided recognize the diverse challenges faced by aspiring teachers and our existing teaching staff to future their certification aspirations– from financial hurdles to balancing education with other life commitments.
