No Missed Opportunities: Addressing Issues in Teacher Hiring

PROGRAM SUMMARY:  How do we get a panoramic view of a teacher candidate, instead of the snapshot gained in an interview? How can we strengthen pedagogy of beginning teachers and trust that their priorities align with our division’s objectives? And how do we fill vacant positions that have small candidate pools?

Join us while we share a journey about reworking internship placement practices and data gathering, strengthening a partnership with the College of Education at the U of S, and gaining flexibility in hiring for hard-to-fill positions through restructuring recruitment systems and methods. These changes are all part of a strategic redesign to improve teacher recruitment, hiring and retention, and in turn, support student learning.
