Dying to get the latest HR scoop? Well here it is anyway. It’s all based on info I requested from the Oakland school district’s chief services officer, Laura Moran:
Teachers who retired, quit, or who were let go this year: 254
New hires: 270 (includes new posts at schools with additional students or funding)
Vacancies remaining: 14, and half are for core academic (non-prep) positions.
Sixty of the new hires were placed through The New Teacher Project. Of that group, 35 went the traditional credentialing route and have an average of three years of experience; 25 have an alternative credential.
That’s all I have for now. Any questions?
