Moving into the 2021-2022 year, we continue to deal with the effects of a global health crisis and systemic racism, both within our schools and in society at large. As school- and district-level leaders grapple with this reality and countless other considerations, this guide aims to provide useful information and resources to help you support and sustain an engaged, committed and successful workforce.
The teachers and administrators in front of our students have great potential for disrupting patterns of inequity in our society, and hiring, assignment, support and development systems shape so much of how these educators enter, engage and thrive in this endeavor. It is our hope that the policy updates, considerations and resources provided in this guide will support you in navigating these systems.
