Successful Recruitment Strategies for State Regulatory Agencies

Mont. TEACH Act Helps to Fill Vacant Teacher Positions

Gov. Greg Gianforte visited Lockwood High in Billings to highlight the impact of the TEACH Act, or Tomorrow’s Educators Are Coming Home Act, legislation passed by the state in 2021—and then worked on by the Legislature in April. According to a press release from the Governor, TEACH offers incentives to school districts to raise starting teacher pay. “In its first year, the TEACH Act helped nearly 500 teachers begin their careers in Montana. This spring, the governor increased funding for the program by 40 percent.” White at Lockwood, the governor talked about the launch of an undergraduate teacher residency program to recruit teachers. According to the press release, the program provides undergraduates with a $6,000 teacher-leader stipend, $4,000 resident tuition, and $3,000 housing supplemental grant expected to support 70 undergraduate teachers annually.

Kansas’ Generative AI Policy to Evolve Over Time

Kansas’ new generative artificial intelligence policy took effect in July and outlines how to use the technology, while prioritizing citizens’ data and privacy. Jeff Maxon, Kansas’ interim chief information technology officer and chief information security officer, chose to establish a policy first, rather than waiting for a task force to study this. According to StateScoop, Maxon explained, “We had to get something in the short term because it’s just moving so fast. It’s out, we can’t ignore it and so we just have to start looking at embracing the technologies that come out in a safe and secure way where we’re respecting our citizens’ privacy and protecting their data.” Maxon told StateScoop he plans to treat the policy like a living document, rather than reviewing the policy just occasionally.
