3D Coalition Project

Des Moines Public Schools (DMPS), Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC), and Drake have created the 3D Coalition project as a vehicle for the recruitment, training, and hiring of high quality teachers of color in schools that enroll large numbers of low income students who are from ethnic minority groups.

The goals of the project include supporting persons of color teacher recruitment efforts and mentoring candidates as they complete their teacher preparation programs at DMACC and Drake, providing high quality teacher preparation training and creating a more diverse teaching force for classrooms in DMPS. Participants who complete their teacher preparation programs will be guaranteed an interview with Des Moines Public Schools.

Interested candidates should contact Emily Behrens, Human Resource Manager at (515) 242-8126.
