Pipeline for Excellent Rural Teaching (PERT)

The Pipeline for Excellent Rural Teaching (PERT) program is a 15-month Master's of Education program that lead to a secondary teacher certification. The goal of the program is to extend and secure a pipeline to increase the quality and quantity of highly-trained secondary mathematics and science teachers in the high-needs, rural regions of the upper Midwest.  To accomplish this goal, PERT seeks to recruit talented professionals from science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) disciplines to become master teachers. 

Participants in the program agree to a five year commitment.  In year one, participants receive a $12,000 stipend in to assist with educational costs while completing the Master's program and certification requirements.  Upon graduation, participants agree to teach high school mathematics or science in a high-needs school district for four years.  Throughout the program, participants receive intensive mentorship and continuing professional development.
