“Research shows that teachers have the greatest impact on student achievement, more than any other factor controlled by school systems, including class size or the school a student attends.”
So begins the Collier County School District’s presentation for Tuesday’s School Board Work Session on Teacher Recruitment and Retention.
They’re doing something right: the District’s overall teacher retention rate is higher than the national average!
What are they doing to hire the best, and retain them?
What recruitment and retention challenges do they face, and how are they addressing them?
If you want the answers to these questions, this School Board Work Session is for you.
The meeting is on Tuesday, April, 21, at 5:30 PM at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Administrative Center, 5775 Osceola Trail, Naples. Agenda here.
The presentation and Board discussion will be preceded by public comments.
Attend in person, watch live on Cable 99 or on the District website, or watch on-demand at your leisure.
This promises to be a great opportunity to learn about how our District works.
