With extensive national debate about closing the Achievement Gap in education, the School District of Beloit believes having a quality, diverse workforce is a key component to address this issue. In too many schools throughout the nation, school districts struggle with educating a very diverse student population with a less than diverse workforce.
The School District of Beloit not only values diversity, but believes our workforce should be reflective of the students and community it proudly serves.
Additionally, the School District of Beloit believes that it is important for students to see and possibly, have the opportunity to be taught by a teacher who looks like them during their educational experience.
In an effort to ensure a mix of diversity in our professional teaching workforce, the School District of Beloit launched the Grow Your Own Multicultural Teacher Scholarship Program.
