We at the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District know that if we are on our way to becoming one of the finest public school systems in the country that serves ALL students well, and engages each student in deep learning that prepares them to solve the challenges of the 21st century, we must recruit and retain high quality teachers. We recognize the challenge of recruiting and retaining high quality new teachers given the current California teacher shortage (see the Teacher Shortage Fact Sheet), and we feel it is our charge to ensure we have various entry points for new teachers in the district.
