How do I apply and what is the application process?
Please refer to the following application and admissions timeline for the 2015-16 residency year:
- Complete and submit the online application and request that the supplementary documents be sent to the Denver Teacher Residency office by the application deadline. All application materials and references must be received by the application deadline in order to be considered.
- There are a limited number of resident openings. These openings are filled by candidates who completed their application by the priority deadline first; if there are openings remaining, we will screen candidates who complete their application by the final deadline.
- Once you create an account, you can access your application at any time. The online application is the only type of application accepted.
- References: Once you submit this section in the application, those individuals provided as references will receive an automated email with a link to start their online referral form.
- Selected applicants will be invited to participate in one of two demonstration days. This selection process includes an in-person interview, teaching demonstration, among other group activities. Final Demonstration day will take place on March 7 and March 8, 2014.
- Following demonstration day, candidates will be notified, via email, if they have been accepted into the DTR program.
