Building a well-thought-out recruitment strategy is an essential part of every school year. No matter how good a teacher’s situation, there’s always a chance they might move on to other jobs for new challenges and a change of scenery. That being said, there’s a lot that schools can do to help ease pressure on recruitment through effective retention of teaching talent. High teacher retention rates are a big plus for parents inquiring into new schools for their kids. When parents can be confident that their incoming freshman has a good chance of having the same math or chemistry teacher for all four years of high school, they will naturally be more attracted to that school.
