Turnaround Principal #5: Effective Staffing Practices

Develop skills to better recruit, retain and develop effective teachers.
Strategies must be included for the following:
  • Hiring timelines and processes allow the school to competitively recruit effective teachers.
  • School leadership uses teacher evaluation to provide feedback for improving classroom practices, informing professional development and increasing learning outcomes
  • Teachers are provided professional development that enables them to continuously reflect, revise, and evaluate their classroom practices to improve learning outcomes in both a structured collaborative setting and individually.
  • Staff assignment is intentional to maximize the opportunities for all students to have access to the staff’s instructional strengths.
