Teacher Retention      March, 2018     
Oakland teachers: what would make you want to stay in your school another 3, 5, or 10 years?
We’re kicking off the 2018-19 Teacher Retention Grant Program — a unique program that was designed by Oakland teachers for Oakland teachers. These grants empower teachers to change the conditions at their school that are preventing teachers like themselves from staying. To date, Educate78 has awarded over $300,000 to district-run and charter-run schools through the grant program.

Want to hear straight from Oakland teachers who have received grants? Check out blog entries from current grant recipients at Madison Park Academy, Greenleaf Elementary, Life Academy and Lazear Charter Academy. The grantees share how they identified the need at their school site, what they’re using the funding for, and what’s been working.
