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 $1,000 per year for a maximum of $4,000 to become certified teachers. If the student then works in a member school district, the district repays the loan ($1,000 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 Clarendon Three; Darlington County; Dillon Districts One, Two and Three, Florence Districts One, Two, Four and Five; Lee County; Marion Districts One, Two, and Seven; Marlboro County; and Williamsburg County.
Applications are taken annually, usually in January or February for the following school year.
