This 11-page brief uses three years of school-level data to explore the relationship between teachers’ perceptions of school climate and teacher retention. It uses the correlation between School Climate construct and sub-construct scores from the annual District-Wide Teacher survey and teacher retention rates to respond to three exploratory questions:
1. From 2015-16 to 2017-18, what was the relationship between teacher perceptions of school climate and teacher retention at the school?
2. Was there any difference in this relationship at elementary-middle school compared to high schools?
3. What were the relationships between each of the six School Climate sub-constructs measured on the teacher survey and teacher retention at the school level?
