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 Arlington Public Schools (APS) has had a contract with Hanover for over five years to provide both research and grant management services and has recently signed a five-year extension.  Hanover provides high-quality, timely, and well-articulated services working closely with APS staff.  Whether working with staff who have significant grant and research experience or staff new to the process, Hanover’s team is professional and expert.  We have used them to research specific topics, provide assistance in program evaluation, and assist with identifying grants and all stages of the grant application process, both for instructional as well as facilities-focused grants. I cannot stress enough the quality of their work and their ability to work within very tight deadlines.
