City introduces CMS apprentice program for recent graduates

CHARLOTTE — The city’s new budget is creating a pathway to employment for several Charlotte-Mecklenburg School graduates.

Charlotte is starting a new apprentice program for CMS high school graduates.

They will get a full-time job with the city with a starting salary of $47,480—that’s more than a first-year CMS teacher with a four-year degree.
