Welcome to Project PREP

University of North Florida’s College of Education and Human Services has been awarded an over $7 Million partnership grant, Project PREP (Partnering to Renew the Educator Pipeline), alongside Clay County District Schools (CCDS) and UNF’s College of Arts and Sciences to address the critical teacher shortage and create equitable teaching outcomes for every student.

This school-university-district partnership grant is a systemic approach to building an educator pathway to enhance the recruitment, preparation, induction and retention of teachers and teacher leaders across the teacher pipeline in a high-need school district.

The project consists of five components that will help develop the educator workforce. These components include 1.) high school dual enrollment, 2.) undergraduate teacher preparation and certification, 3.) early career professional learning, 4.) teacher leadership graduate certificates and advanced credentials stackable towards a Master's in Elementary Education at UNF or school principal learning through Professional Learning Communities (PLCs), and an M.Ed. in Educational Leadership, and 5.) an Educational Doctorate in Educational Leadership or Curriculum and Instruction offered through UNF.
