Retention & Professional Development

Retain quality teachers by providing effective professional development and leadership preparation programs.

Retention and Professional Development

According to the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) 20 percent of all new hires leave the classroom within three years. In urban districts, the numbers are worse—close to 50 percent of newcomers flee the profession during their first five years of teaching.

Teachers who participate in ongoing professional development are more confident, find greater job satisfaction, and improve their student’s achievement by honing their teaching skills. We offer convenient, relevant and affordable online courses for professional development and re-certification.
