Retaining effective staff can be a big challenge for districts, and burnout is at an all-time high. Henry Wellington, CEO and founder of Upbeat, uses predictive analytics to guide districts in their approaches to combating these issues. In this session, gain insights into top predictors of attrition and the steps districts are taking to address them.
Learn about ways to measure teacher engagement satisfaction, and Henry discusses the best ways to promote a positive culture in an individual school or across a school district–key to retaining staff. Attendees will come away from this edWebinar with best practices and the resources they need to make a difference for teachers in their communities.
Research shows that giving teachers a voice into school-wide policies and fostering positive relationships between colleagues can increase teacher retention in schools. The first step in addressing the issue is gathering the necessary data to strategically respond. K-12 stakeholders at all levels, including superintendents, principals, librarians, IT managers, purchasers, and aides, are all affected by retention issues and are invited to watch this recorded edWebinar to learn about the unique opportunities they have to combat the problem.
