Resignation Rates by District

The following graph was created using data for the 2013-14 school year from 14 surrounding school districts. The data was provided by district administrators or their designee. For those who are concerned about the rate of teacher resignations in WGSD, there are two meetings this Monday, September 22nd, that parents and community members should attend. The monthly board meeting begins at 6 PM and the annual meeting is scheduled immediately afterward (approximately 7 PM). Both meetings allow for citizen input and both will be held in the Evergreen cafeteria.

Note: This information does not include teachers that retired or teachers that were non-renewed.  In most cases the request for information was received via email. The typical request was as follows:

——————– BEGIN EMAIL ——————
Hello (Name of District Administrator),

This is a follow up to my voice message earlier today.

The information I am requesting is the total number of teachers (DPI Licensed) that were employed by (district name) on August 31, 2014 and the total number of teacher resignations during the period from September 1, 2013 through August 31, 2014.

The number of teacher resignations should NOT include teacher retirements or non-renewals.
I appreciate your time on this issue and I will be sure to send you a link to the compiled data once it is finalized later this week.

Thank you,
Matt Kranich
Waterford Graded School District Parent
