DISTRICT NEWS, Teach Ascension–Alternative Teacher Certification - 2015.04.30The Ascension Parish School System has been awarded a $65,000 grant from the Louisiana Board of Elementary and Secondary Education to implement an Ascension district-based alternative teacher certification program for high quality college graduates who possess the skill set and strong desire to become classroom teachers.


The state funding will allow the district to implement the Teach Ascension Academy program that will seek to identify professionals who have a passion to help young people and the desire to use their knowledge and skills to benefit others.

Those professionals must possess a non-education baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited university, have a 2.50 or higher grade point average, and can pass the Praxis core academic skill tests.  Candidates will also be required to go through a rigorous interview process.

“We are very excited that our proposed strategy for continued school and district improvement has gained the financial support needed from the state to be implemented,” Pujol said.  “Today’s classroom demands skilled professionals who have the desire and ability to make a difference in the lives of our students.  We are looking for special people to can do a remarkable job.”

The BESE Believe and Prepare grant will allow the district to recruit, train, certify and retain high quality college graduates to become teachers in the district.

Pujol said the candidates will be placed in one of the district’s 12 Teach Ascension site schools where they will be immersed in daily job-embedded professional development with the goal of having the recruits earn their teacher certification by the end of Year 1 of the program.

She noted that for the candidates to obtain certification, they must score either Highly Effective or Effective Proficient within the state’s teacher evaluation system.

“We know not everyone has the passion and drive to be a teacher, but we also know some people who have pursued non-education career paths are some of our best teachers.  We want to create an opportunity for these people to pursue their passion and utilize the unique skills they have to instill knowledge and positively affect others,” Pujol said. “We look forward to strengthening our professional ranks with these new recruits.”
