The state Teacher Shortage Loan Forgiveness Program (TSLFP) was designed to help recruit and retain qualified teachers. The program provides for the opportunity for school districts to apply for vacant positions or positions that have already been filled by contracted teachers in critical need or shortage areas in which teachers hired may receive teacher loan forgiveness. Teachers who are contracted and fill the approved positions may receive teacher loan forgiveness. This program will reduce loan indebtedness for individuals teaching in North Dakota at grade levels, content areas, and geographical locations identified by the Superintendent of Public Instruction as having a teacher shortage or critical need.
