KDE - Recruitment and Retention of Teachers: Resources for School and District Leaders
Kentucky’s schools and districts are struggling to find and keep talent. Teacher shortages, retention challenges with younger teachers, outdated compensation structures, and economic pressure in local communities leave many schools under-staffed and administrators struggling to fill gaps.
USHCA, a national non-profit, currently working with about 50 districts and 20 states, will be with us on January 28th, 2020 at KEDC-LEX, 118 James Court, Lexington KY 40505.
Since its founding in 2011, USHCA has helped districts become less transactional and more strategic in their human capital and talent work. While USHCA has many tools and processes to help districts address their needs for stronger recruiting, better hiring and more effective retention, this session is designed for participants to share their specific challenges and work together to address them.
KDE Leaders will share resources around “Grow Your Own” and non-traditional hiring pathways, ideas for utilization of Title II funds, and support and information about the NEW Working Conditions Survey.
When the day is over, you’ll leave with more than a dozen concrete tools you can take back to your school or district and a plan for addressing your most acute issues. This session is well-timed because it will allow you the opportunity to think and plan for retaining teachers this spring and hiring teachers for 2020-21.
