What is RWT-BEI?

Recruiting Washington Teachers – Bilingual Educators Initiative (RWT-BEI) is a high school teacher academy program to recruit, prepare, and mentor bilingual students to become future bilingual educators in the state of Washington.

The mission of RWT is to create a teaching workforce more reflective of Washington State’s students while diminishing the teacher shortage, and increasing educational opportunities for historically underserved students. RWT-BEI focuses on the same mission, while also developing bilingual teachers and counselors, creating resources for supporting teacher academies with a bilingual focus, and incorporating the Seal of Biliteracy into teacher academy work.
