Achieve Hartford! today released its latest edfocus issue brief, entitled “Standing by Our Principals: Why Hartford Principals Leave – and What Can Be Done to Keep Our Best.”
Here is the news release.
After noticing a spate of principal vacancies, Achieve Hartford! reviewed school system data and found that about 16 percent of city principals left between 2012 and 2014, including five people who became central office administrators elsewhere. That’s better than the national turnover rate for principals, a quarter of whom leave their jobs each year, according to a recent study from School Leaders Network.
