dc.description.abstract The purpose of this qualitative case study was to explore the phenomenon of teacher residency programs. It sought to evaluate the impact a 15-month residency program had on effectively preparing highly qualified teachers for high-need school districts. Due to the infancy of the program, it has never undergone a formal program evaluation to determine the impact of the residency program. Stufflebeam’s CIPP Evaluation model (1983) was selected as the theoretical framework for this study. The CIPP evaluation model is a four-part evaluation process that evaluates Context, Input, Process, and Product of a program. This research was motivated by four questions: (1) What were the identified issues, based on archival data, that initially justified the establishment of the Kern Rural Teacher Residency program?; (2) What are some strategies or approaches that are being used to enhance the merit of the program?; (3) How is the program following implementation strategies that were previously outlined at the onset of the program?; (4) To what extent does the teacher residency program meet objectives or goals in preparing highly qualified teacher candidates for rural settings according to the program four-year data? A qualitative collection method was used: demographic survey questionnaires, interviews, focus group, and archival data. The participants comprised of the program coordinator, faculty mentors, graduate residents, and current residents in their first year of the program. Three themes were identified from multiple stakeholders. The themes were candidate selection process, teaching strategies, and cooperating teachers (CTM). en_US
