Grantees receive an invite credit balance of $5,000 to connect with their own pre-vetted, curated pool of teachers and school leaders on Selected.
The purpose of the Urban Teacher Recruitment Grant Program (“Grant Program”) is to support the outreach and recruitment efforts of high needs schools with demonstrated financial hardship due to COVID-19.
Selected is dedicated to connecting schools with the most relevant, committed, and diverse teachers. Our teacher outreach and hiring platform matches schools with a pre-vetted, qualified, and diverse pool of Pre-K to 12 teachers in urban metro areas throughout the Northeast US, California, Arizona, and Texas.
We have helped schools reduce their cost per teacher hire to as low as $300 by simplifying teacher outreach so schools can run an efficient selection process, and have continued to raise the bar on candidate diversity (e.g., 45% are people of color) and quality (e.g., 90% are certified).
