Engagement Strategies to Improve K-12 Teacher Retention

When teachers are engaged, the entire school district—and community—benefits. Teachers who are engaged with their work report high levels of satisfaction in working with school stakeholders. In addition, positive educator engagement leads to high quality education, innovative idea sharing, instruction tailored to student needs, and more.

Many districts are struggling to engage their teachers; 70% of teachers report not feeling engaged at work.
