Hanover’s Talent Management Solutions help K-12 administrators attract and retain the best staff by evaluating the new teacher experience and ongoing employee professional development needs, identifying models for effective teacher evaluations, and uncovering reasons for staff departures.

We help you answer key questions and deliver strategies for success:

  • How do we recruit the best teachers to our schools?
  • How should we prioritize our educator and staff professional development needs?
  • Which teacher evaluation models are most effective for us in developing instructional leaders?
  • Why do our employees leave and how can we prevent unwanted departures?

A Word from One of Our K-12 Education Clients:

The Middle Schools for Tomorrow Workgroup was brought together to allow parents, students, teachers, and the larger community to take an active role in crafting their vision of the future for ACPS middle schools. The workgroup was asked to create their idealized middle school, take a critical look at current practices within Alexandria middle schools, and ultimately lay the groundwork for how the division should move strategically forward.

Hanover Research, in conjunction with school division staff, were integral in this work by supplying best practices research around identified topics, crafting and administering a survey, providing quantitative and qualitative data analysis, and responding to stakeholder feedback throughout the six-month process. Decisions are only as good as the information used in forming them, and the research and data analysis provided allowed the stakeholder group to make the highest quality decisions not only in reaction to where our middle schools had been, but more importantly where they must go.
