Strategic planning helping metro Atlanta schools keep teachers


Today’s afternoon job fair at DeKalb County Schools’ Stone Mountain headquarters is targeting special education teachers and nurses. The new human resources chief, Bernice Gregory, said recent strategies targeting specific groups have worked well to find quality candidates for long-term employment, which also helps the district in its retention efforts.

Targeted recruiting, as well as improved working conditions at schoolhouses, has helped most metro Atlanta school districts keep teachers longer. This year, Atlanta’s six largest school districts are looking to hire fewer than 1,000 teachers, with retirements a bigger factor than those seeking jobs outside education or fleeing to other school districts.
