Winchester Public Schools’ Teacher Turnover Declines

26 September 2018 News

Winchester Public Schools has announced a large decline in their teacher turnover rates.

The school division’s human resource director, Doug Joyner, said in a Monday night Winchester School Board meeting that the turnover rate declined from 20.25% in the 2016-2017 school year to just 13.5% the next year. Winchester Public Schools Superintendent Jason Van Heukelum credited salary increases and a stronger focus on engaging students and teachers as the cause for the positive change. His goal is to keep Winchester teacher salaries competitive with those in Frederick County, which has a slight edge over the city and absorbed three Winchester teachers last year.
