ARL Program Overview

Dreaming of your very own classroom?

How about a fast-start teacher preparation program?

The CCSD Alternative Routes to Licensure (ARL) Program offers opportunities for individuals seeking a rewarding career teaching students in high-needs areas. CCSD welcomes strong, diverse candidates with rich life experiences, conferred bachelor’s degrees in areas other than education, and a passion for helping all students succeed. Selected candidates will participate in a 10-week teacher preparation boot camp and complete 20 field experience days in a CCSD classroom. Upon successful completion, candidates can apply for a provisional teaching license and are eligible to be hired as a new CCSD teacher with full salary and benefits! Candidates then have 3 years to complete required college coursework and convert to a standard teaching license.
