Future Ready 2023

Key Accomplishments:

The strategies in Great Teachers & Leaders target improvements in every facet of our talent development and retention effort. Our team worked to expand recruiting efforts and improve diversity, while accelerating hiring timelines to secure the best candidates. We enhanced our career fairs and conducted school preview tours for potential recruits. We hosted “signing day” to welcome and celebrate new teachers who accepted positions before the start of the school year. The on-boarding and orientation process for both certified and classified staff was modernized to ensure successful transition for new employees. The New Teacher Academy was created to provide day one classroom and content support, match all new teachers with mentors and extend professional learning supports into the first three years of employment. These efforts resulted in increased retention of first-year teachers and 86% of teachers reporting job satisfaction at their current school.
