ACCELERATED PREPARATION PROGRAM FOR LEADERS IN EDUCATION
The Accelerated Preparation Program for Leaders in Education (APPLE) is a partnership between LAUSD - Local District South and Local District East to recruit, train, prepare, place and retain highly qualified elementary and secondary teachers. This program is ideal for recent college graduates and mid-career professionals or paraprofessionals (but no teaching experience). Through APPLE, participants will teach full-time as interns (earning full salary and benefits) while completing their preliminary teaching credential. APPLE features an accelerated curriculum (credential in one year!), financial support ($10,000 stipend), and substantial classroom support for new teachers. APPLE elementary teachers will also earn a single subject foundational credential in math or science to teach grades 7-8. APPLE will promote equity in education by preparing highly qualified new teachers and increasing STEM teaching skills for educators in partner schools.
