Teacher Shortage Areas
Iowa teacher shortage areas are designated annually by the Iowa Department of Education. Data used to calculate the shortages include the numbers of Class C and Class B licenses issued, the number and frequency of job postings on TeachIowa.gov (the statewide teacher recruitment website), and the number of projected graduates in each teaching discipline.
Teachers in shortage areas may be eligible for college student forgivable loans through both state and federal programs. Information regarding application for forgivable loans is available at the Iowa College Student Aid Commission website.
