Texas State has joined the US PREP National Coalition for Renewing Educator Preparation. With US PREP funding and technical support, we are piloting a Teacher Residency in Lockhart ISD at Clear Fork Elementary. Our faculty and teacher candidates are immersed in the Clear Fork campus community as they engage in coursework, field experience, and student teaching over the course of a full year.
