Resolution of March 13, 2021 No. 367

The Zemsky Teacher program will be continued. The federal budget provides for funding for it until the end of 2023. Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, by his resolution, adjusted the rules for granting subsidies allocated for this project.

The Zemsky Teacher program was launched in 2020 at the initiative of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Its goal is to attract new teachers to the countryside. Under the terms of the program, teachers who have moved to work in villages or cities with a population of up to 50 thousand people receive a one-time compensation payment of 1 million rubles. If the settlement is located on the territory of the Far Eastern Federal District, then the compensation is 2 million rubles. To participate in the program, you need to enter into an employment contract with a local school, pledging to work in it for at least five years. The list of vacancies is posted on the official website of the program https: //… You can also apply for participation here.

The implementation of the program was discussed in detail at the meeting of Mikhail Mishustin with secondary school teachers in the Altai Territory, which took place in Barnaul on March 2, 2021. The teachers, in particular, were interested in whether it is planned to extend this program in the future. The head of government assured that it would be continued.

Money for payments to teachers is allocated from the federal budget. Subsidies are provided on the basis of an agreement between the Ministry of Education and the leadership of the region, an agreement on the provision of payments, as well as an employment contract concluded with an educational organization. The new decree simplifies the scheme for assessing the effectiveness of the use of state support funds. If earlier it was necessary to calculate a certain percentage of teachers who received payments, now it will be enough to indicate their actual number in each financial year.

The signed document changes the Government Decree of December 26, 2017 No. 1642
