FLORIDA’S CRITICAL TEACHER SHORTAGE PROGRAMS
“Each school year Florida school districts face the challenge of filling more than 16,000 teacher positions. Even though Florida continues to experience a critical need for additional teachers, the number of graduates in teacher education is lower than it was five years ago.”

* (Florida State Board of Education)

In consequence, the Florida Department of Education has developed programs to address this Critical Teacher Shortage, and encourage the development of the teaching profession.

Critical Teacher Shortage Student Loan Forgiveness Program

The State of Florida’s Department of Education provides financial assistance to eligible Florida teachers through the Critical Teacher Shortage Student Loan Forgiveness Program for the repayment of undergraduate and graduate educational loans which led to certification in a critical teacher shortage subject area. Applicants may receive up to a maximum of $10,000 for the duration of the program. For more information regarding this program, contact the Florida Department of Education.

Critical Teacher Shortage Tuition Reimbursement Program

The State of Florida’s Department of Education created this program for the purpose of improving skills and knowledge of certified full-time publicly funded school employees currently teaching or preparing to teach in a Pre K-12 critical teacher shortage area as approved by the State Board of Education. Applicants funded through the program may receive limited tuition reimbursement for up to nine (9) semester hours, or the equivalent quarter hours per academic year, for a program maximum of thirty-six (36) cumulative semester hours or the equivalent.
