Z. Smith Reynolds Teacher Retention Convening

 

On July 29, 2009 Ralph Evans, Director of The Collaborative to Support Initially Licensed Professionals participated in a group discussion of practitioners in the teacher retention field for a day of sharing and learning.

 

According to staff from the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation, they have been privileged to meet individuals across North Carolina who are working to address the many issues surrounding teacher retention.  Some programs have strong track records of success; others are implementing new, innovative and yet-untested solutions.  Through many conversations, they’ve found a need for better information sharing across programs and a strong desire among practitioners in this field to learn about other organizations’ approaches, successes, and challenges.

Goals for the day included:

  1. Share what each organization/institution is currently doing to address teacher retention concerns.

  2. Share what each organization/institution has learned so far—both best practices and lessons learned.

  3. Encourage and/or facilitate learning about how to measure the effectiveness of efforts to increase teacher retention.

The group included representatives from school districts, teacher education institutions, The Public School Forum, North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching, The Center for Teaching Quality, Connectinc, and representatives from Z. Smith Reynolds..

 

Participation in this activity was a very enlightening experience and provided insight into resources and strategies which may help The Collaborative to be a more effective organization
