Report: Building Community and Capacity: The Effects of the First Year of LUSD’s Teacher Residency Program

Teacher residency programs have the potential to address two systems-level challenges exacerbated by the pandemic: educator shortages and training for novice educators.

This report provides an overview of the findings of a mixed-method study conducted to understand the impacts of the first year of Lindsay Unified School District's “grow-your-own” residency program.
