The RESC Alliance is working with CREC to offer this program across the state at ACES, CREC, CES and LEARN for the 21-22 class.
In the 1990s, Connecticut’s six RESCs formed the RESC Alliance to create greater access to resources and savings for all Connecticut public schools. Today, the RESCs collaborate to deliver an ever-growing variety of education resources and services that schools and communities couldn’t otherwise afford. The RESC Alliance also advocates at the state legislature for laws that address and respond to the education needs of all Connecticut residents.
Fifteen residents are currently enrolled and serving their residencies in the following partnership districts.
The following partner districts have committed to having residents in cohorts in four locations across the state. Spaces are still available for additional districts to join these cohorts.
Site 1 (ACES)
Site 2 (CES)
Site 3 (CREC)
Site 4 (LEARN)

The CREC Teacher Residency Program is a proven strategy to hire and train teachers of color to become certified elementary school teachers. This program is designed so that you have a pipeline to support high performing staff with Bachelors degrees to move to the next level and join the ranks of full time teachers.
Program staff will work with you to identify candidates already working in your school district or community to become certified elementary school teachers after 14 months of intense training and a full-time residency with a mentor teacher in one of your schools.
