Description

Grow Your Own Teacher Program Fund; Grow Your Own Teacher Programs. Establishes the Grow Your Own Teacher Program Fund and permits the Department of Education to award grants from such fund to local school boards to establish Grow Your Own Teacher Programs whereby the local school board provides scholarships not to exceed $7,500 per academic year for attendance at a baccalaureate institution of higher education in the Commonwealth to any individual who (i) graduated from a public high school in the local school division; (ii) was eligible for free or reduced price lunch throughout the individual's attendance at a public high school in the local school division; and (iii) commits to teach, within three years of graduating from the baccalaureate institution of higher education in the Commonwealth and for a period of at least four years, in the school division at a public high school at which at least 50 percent of students qualify for free or reduced price lunch. The bill provides that in the event that any program scholarship recipient fails or refuses to comply with such teaching obligation, the sum of all scholarship funds received by such individual shall be converted to a loan that is subject to repayment with interest.
