ARC


The Alternative Route to Certification (ARC) Program is seeking Evaluators for our five-week Student Practicum. The ARC program has been helping adult learners with college degrees to enter the teaching profession in a non-traditional way for thirty years. Students in our program attend weekend classes throughout the school year. From late February through March, students participate in a Student Practicum in schools throughout the state with the help of TEAM-trained cooperating teachers. We need retired teachers to visit schools four times during student placements to evaluate student growth, support the beginning teacher, and work with the cooperating teacher. A stipend of $500.00 is paid upon completion of the practicum. Mileage is also paid based on the State of Connecticut mileage reimbursement system. For more information about the program, including application information and minimum qualifications, please visit http://www.ctohe.org/ARC/.

Interested applicants should email a brief cover letter describing their interest and qualifications for the position, a current resume, and contact information (including daytime contact telephone numbers and email) for three (3) professional references to the ARC Office at: arc@ctohe.org.
