Boston Plan for Excellence
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2011
The mission of the Boston Teacher Residency (BTR) is to drive significant student achievement gains through the recruitment, preparation and support of exceptional teachers in Boston. For the 2010-2011 program year, BTR enrolled 70 members for 70 member slots (100%). The program recruits high-quality prospective teachers and, through a rigorous residency year with a mentor teacher and continued support, prepares them to become highly effective, long term teachers in the Boston Public Schools (BPS). BTR's current teacher retention rate is 85%.
