Are you excited about your career as a teacher, but concerned about your student loan debt? We have good news! You may be eligible for the Teacher Loan Forgiveness Program. This is a program managed by the US Department of Education to help recruit and retain teachers at high-needs schools across the country.
To qualify, you must teach for five complete and consecutive years in a low-income school. Low-income schools are defined as schools which have at least 30.1% of students who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals. Of Chesterfield’s 64 schools, 34 qualify for this program. You can learn more about the TLFP program here, and you can find the VDOE’s list of schools here.

All you have to do is sign up for a college class, earn a passing grade, send us your transcripts, and you could receive up to $2,000 per year to help pay for your college courses. Tuition assistance is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis and is not guaranteed. You can read more about tuition assistance here, or email [email protected] for more information.
