DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The City of Dayton and the Dayton Public Schools are offering an incentive to attract teachers to the district.
The city announced a new Live Dayton, Teach Dayton program.
First year teachers who sign a contract with participating schools are eligible for a $1,000 living stipend. The teacher must also live within Dayton city limits to be eligible.
The stipend can be used for rental expenses or as a down payment on a house or condo.
50 living stipends will be distributed.
The program is a direct result of Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley’s City of Learners initiative launched in 2014.
The city plans to formally announce the Live Dayton, Teach Dayton program Thursday.
