In 2017, NCTR worked with the largest number of programs in our history. Our strategic consulting group supported 14 new or emerging programs, while our Next Generation Network of established teacher residencies grew to 24. In addition, NCTR has partnered with the California State University System to transform the traditional teacher prep programs at seven campuses. Together, these residencies have trained approximately 3,500 teachers to work in high-need, low-income schools. Residency graduates teach close to 200,000 students, and our footprint continues to grow.
