Districts will be participating in the program sponsored by Wipro Ltd

underperforming students. Twenty experienced teachers from the five 
school districts will be selected to join the first cohort. Each 
teacher will participate for two years and will receive a stipend of 
$10,000 for their work. The program at Montclair State University is in
