The Teacher Recruitment Education and Preparation (TREP) program was created by SB 21-185. The TREP program creates the opportunity for qualified students in a teaching career pathway to concurrently enroll in postsecondary courses for the two years after the 12th grade year.   

Program Objectives

  1. To increase the number of students who enter the teacher profession. 

  1. Increase the percentage of students who participate in postsecondary education preparation programs, especially among low-income and traditionally underserved populations. 

  1. Create a more diverse teacher workforce to reflect the ethnic diversity of the state. 

  1. Decrease the amount of time that is required for a student to complete a postsecondary educator preparation degree or certificate. 

  1. Increase the opportunities to participate in the teaching career pathway.
