Utah Early Career Teacher Retention Partnership

Teacher turnover is fiscally and academically costly, and attrition from the profession is highest in teachers’ initial years on the job. More than 40 percent of Utah teachers leave the profession within their first five years with patterns varying regionally across the state. This multi-year partnership between REL West and the Utah State Board of Education will engage a set of Utah school districts to understand and address the root causes of early career teacher attrition through new local data collection, and analysis and applied research.

Current Projects

This coaching project convenes a professional learning community of human resource and professional learning leaders from multiple Utah local education agencies (LEAs) to engage in review of local data and inquiry cycles around early career teacher support and retention. Each LEA will also pilot selected evidence-based strategies for teacher retention and share lessons learned with other LEAs.
