UCCS, Harrison Partner Up in Teacher Recruitment

March 1, 2009

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS), College of Education in collaboration with Harrison School District 2 would like to invite you to participate in a one-of-a-kind early recruitment and tuition reimbursement program. If selected for this program, Harrison School District will reimburse you up to $4,000 per semester for a maximum of three semesters. In return, you must commit to work as a classroom teacher in the Harrison School District. For every one semester of tuition reimbursement, you will teach in the Harrison School District for one year. 

Harrison School District Two will collaborate with the College of Education (COE) at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs to improve teacher quality on the front end – before the teachers start working for the District. This collaboration represents a significant investment in improving teacher effectiveness over the long term.

The goal of the plan is to recruit teachers with the skills and talents to become effective teachers of Harrison’s students. Harrison will identify and invite UCCS students who are currently accepted and enrolled in the Teacher Education Program at the undergraduate or graduate level.

Applications are due on April 15, 2009. Contact Aimee Pavlik at, or 719-255-3227, for more information or if would like to apply for this one-of-a-kind early recruitment program!
