Beginning Teacher Network Grant


The North Dakota Teacher Support System invites districts and Regional Education Associations (REAs) to apply for the Beginning Teacher Network Grant (BTNG).  The network offers grants to districts and REAs so they may provide supplemental support for beginning teachers.  This support is in addition to the Mentoring Program offered by the NDTSS.   

Districts can request $3,000 plus $125 for each first and second year teacher over five

REAs can request $4,000 plus $125 for each first and second year teacher over five.

The grant application is due July 15th. If you need additional time, please contact me and we can work out a plan.

Successful grant applicants will be notified by August 1, 2023.

The NDTSS mentoring program is able to support all first AND second year teachers for the 2022-23 school year. This is a big opportunity to continue supporting teachers in their 2nd year.

Please remember that the BTN is a supplement to the NDTSS Mentoring Program. Encourage administrators in your district or region to enroll 1st and 2nd year teachers into the mentoring program through the link on this page:
