Teacher Pathway Scholarship

NCIC is working with its member districts to increase the percent of teachers of color in the member school districts.  We are also committed to investing in educators who are committed to returning to teach in rural Minnesota schools, especially those in the NCIC service area, which includes the school districts of Adrian, Ellsworth, Fulda, Heron Lake-Okabena, Round Lake-Brewster and Worthington.  We want to ensure that our students have access to teachers who are teaching in their field and who are committed to providing high-quality and equitable education to all students. Spring Semester 2023 scholarship application is now open!

Home Visit Program

Hey teachers and staff! Did you know we offer a home visit program to help you connect with your students and their families?
Home visits can increase student performance, jump start parent involvement, reduce discipline problems, and increase overall positive attitudes towards school. NCIC is offering an opportunity for teachers and school counselors to conduct home visits during the 2022-2023 school year with the option of virtual family visits available. Home visits provide wonderful opportunities for students, parents, and teachers to connect, communicate, and increase cultural competence. We do not require you to have prior experience with home visits; NCIC will provide you with training to ensure you are well-prepared and comfortable. If you would like to join the home visit cohort for the 2022-2023 school year or would like more information, call our office at (507)376-3300.
