How to More Effectively Recruit & Retain Talented Educators for Independent Schools
Presented by School Growth

August 25, 2022
The Covenant School, Nashville
9:30am-2:00pm CDT

Workshop Description: While TAIS consists of a wide range of different school types and sizes, there’s one thing we all have in common: It’s our People that makes the biggest difference. And, it’s never been harder to win the war for talent. The journey to authentic excellence requires a radical and fanatical commitment to talent that goes well beyond HR compliance and job postings. We have to become exceptionally disciplined about recruiting and retaining educators who have the right skills, credentials, and especially attitude. In this workshop we will share proven strategies to attract more qualified applicants to your school and how to elevate your value proposition to sustain a high quality faculty. 

Target Audience: Heads of School, Associate/Assistant Heads of School, Directors of Operations, Human Resources Directors, Deans of Faculty, Division Heads, and Board Members. Teams from schools are strongly encouraged to attend to work together on a master plan, although this is not required.

Cost per person:
TAIS Member Schools: $165
Guests: $245
Snacks and lunch are included in the price of registration.
