About the Program
The Hire in Advance Program
is designed to ease the transition to a teaching career. Through the Hire in Advance Program, Troops to Teachers participants are able to apply for a teaching position with participating school districts up to two years in advance. After successfully completing the application and interview process, participants are then issued a Letter of Intent outlining the terms of employment.
Some school districts will require participants to complete a licensure program prior to the employment start date. Most districts offering Hire in Advance contracts will allow participants to enter an alternative licensure program. The program is only open to individuals interested in teaching high need subject areas as determined by the district, which usually include math, science and special education.
