This month, we have shared Oakland teachers’ ideas to address some of their basic needs and strengthen management support to increase teacher engagement and retention in theirs schools. As teachers ourselves, we know this foundation is critical to our satisfaction and success. In our recent Citywide Teacher Survey
, we heard that many other teachers are seeking support in these areas, too.
We are thrilled that our fellow educators at La Escuelita, Madison Park Academy, Coliseum College Prep Academy, North Oakland Community Charter School, Learning Without Limits, International Community School, and Greenleaf, will have the resources to put their ideas into action through our Oakland Educator Retention Grant Program
. We’re looking forward to hearing what they learn, and sharing those insights with educators across the city.
