The Cost of Teacher Turnover

Chalkboard with "help needed!" message.

Do you experience teacher turnover during the Summer?

Teacher turnover is becoming more common as less college students go into education and even fewer stick around. Did you know that 6 of 10 new teachers hired every year replace educators leaving the classroom before their retirement? This doesn’t even account for the roughly 9% of teachers that simply switch schools.

That means you are left to spend thousands to find new candidates to bolster your shrinking faculty every Summer. Whether it’s job boards, advertisements, or hosting recruiting events, there is a hefty price to pay when teachers leave each year.

One Solution That Can Help

When particular subs keep coming back to your school, you get the chance to see them in action. You can answer questions like, “how is their classroom management ?”, by simply observing their skills in real time. While Tagg helps you cover daily vacancies, it also enables you to access and vet potential full-time teachers for free.

Once you’ve discovered a substitute you like, you can hire them as an employed teacher for a one time fee of 10% of their first year’s salary. That’s a fraction of the cost it would have required for you to find and assess candidates on your own.

We’ve had several partner schools find full-time teachers through our platform and we’d love to help you too! If you would like more information, reach out to our team and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
