Governor's Teacher Network Application Deadline Extended, Training Dates Announced

Due to a high level of interest, spring breaks and holidays occurring during this month, a number of North Carolina public school principals have requested that the deadline for application to the Governor's Teacher Network be extended to Wednesday, April 30.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The training dates for those selected to participate will be two or three days during the window of June 30-July 2 and will take place in Raleigh. Interested applicants should leave those dates open, and information on the two dates of those three selected will be forthcoming.

The GTN, funded by the state's Race to the Top grant, will provide a statewide platform for teachers to share their best work around instruction and professional development and to help advance Race to the Top (RttT) funded educational remodeling efforts across the state. Through the GTN, approximately 450 outstanding teachers from across North Carolina will be selected to serve for one year as instructional and professional development experts and facilitators.
