Rep. Alexander to Present Check to ULM

U.S. Rep. Rodney Alexander, R-Quitman, today announced that the University of Louisiana at Monroe will receive $2,435,006 (total funding) in federal funding which will go toward ULM's Louisiana Transition to Teaching (LA T2T). The check will be presented at 9 a.m., Friday, in the ULM media room, located on the sixth floor of the library.

LA T2T is a partnership of 21 school systems and four universities with existing alternative pathways to teacher certification in four areas of the state. The project proposes to attract outstanding candidates for critical shortage areas throughout the state and will coordinate statewide initiatives to recruit and train 575 new teachers selected from a broad range of highly qualified mid-career professionals and recent college graduates from diverse backgrounds. For the first year of the LA T2T program, ULM will receive $485,770.
