CHANCELLOR WALCOTT ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF NEWINTERACTIVE SMART RETENTION REPORT TO HELPPRINCIPALS RETAIN THEIR BEST TEACHERS
 Chancellor Dennis M. Walcott today announced the launch of a new interactivetool, the Smart Retention Report, to help principals more strategically retain and developtheir best teachers. The Smart Retention Report will enable principals to viewindividualized data on each teacher, better identify retention and attrition patterns of lowand high-performing teachers at their schools, and customize their retention strategydepending on the quality of the teacher. The Department of Education created the SmartRetention Report in response to a recent study by TNTP, which revealed that the mostand least effective teachers leave urban schools at the same rate. Combined with the newfour-tiered teacher evaluation system which will be implemented this fall, the SmartRetention Report will give principals a powerful tool to identify and retain their bestteachers.The report summarizes key information about teachers at each school and isdivided into three sections – the Data Report, Teacher Detail, and Smart RetentionStrategies. The Data Report will allow principals to see patterns among teachers who leftversus those who stayed, including whether they tended to be U-rated, had tenuredecisions extended, or had low student growth scores. The interactive tool will also allow principals to examine why teachers left – whether they transferred to another school,were placed in the Absent Teacher Reserve pool, were promoted to a supervisory position, or were separated from and no longer employed by the DOE.The Teacher Detail section allows principals to see individualized data for eachteacher. Principals can then sort this data by category – such as teachers who transferred to other schools – to better analyze patterns and inform their retention strategies. Thethird Smart Retention Strategies section provides recommended strategies and resourcesto help principals develop a retention plan.“Teachers are the most important school-based predictor of student achievement,and we have to do everything we can to keep our best teachers,” said Schools Chancellor Dennis M. Walcott. “Having detailed information about teacher performance and retention at their fingertips will better enable our principals to develop staff and retain our  best and brightest.”
