Simmons College of Kentucky is partnering with JCPS in Transition to Teaching
This program is designed to help people who have a college degree to move toward certification as a JCPS teacher. There is presently a cohort of 15 potential teachers in a program through JCPS done in partnership with Simmons, which meets on our campus. We are also exploring other ways we can help people who have college degrees and who want to be teachers, but who are not yet certified, to move towards certification. If you would like to learn more about either one of these programs please follow this link. Please note that Simmons does not offer an education degree presently, and that these programs are not for academic credit.
