Welcome to NET-Q


 Network for Enhancing Teacher Quality (NET-Q) project is to increase the quality and number of highly qualified teachers who are committed to high needs schools (urban metro-Atlanta and rural Georgia settings).
Project objectives and activities include:

  • (a) enhancing pre-baccalaureate teacher preparation programs;
  • (b) enhancing post-baccalaureate teacher preparation programs; and
  • (c) creating teacher and leadership residency programs for post-baccalaureate candidates, along with  complementary priorities (comprehensive induction/mentor program, enhanced professional develop­ment school partnerships, and the development of faculty knowledge).

Pre- and post-baccalaureate teacher, leader preparation programs and complementary initiatives focus on developing knowledge and skills related to teaching special education, English Language Learners (ELL), technology, and literacy across the content areas. A unique feature of this program is its partnership with two Historically Black Colleges to increase teacher recruitment from underrepresented groups.
