Minority Teacher Recruitment
The Pee Dee Education Center administers a loan program to encourage minority students to become teachers and work in member school districts.
Students can receive $1,500 per year for a maximum of $6,000 to become certified teachers. If the student then works in a member school district, the district repays the loan ($1,500 per year). If the student does not work in a member district, he or she must repay the loan plus interest.
Member districts include Chesterfield County, Darlington County, Dillon Districts Three and Four, Florence Districts One, Two and Five, Georgetown County, Lee County, Marion County, Marlboro County and Williamsburg County.
Applications are taken annually, usually in January or February for the following school year.
