A Study of Professional Staff Turnover in Catskill Area Schools for the Year Ending June 1968.
Heldman, Lawrence J.
The professional staff in 33 Catskill Area School Study Council and peripheral area schools for the year ending June 1968 consisted of 70 administrators, 1,557 classroom teachers, and 131 persons in other professional staff capacities. The schools ranged in enrollment from 233 to 3,033. Of the 261 professional staff involved in the total turnover, 13.4% retired from service, 19.1% left for family reasons, 11.1% left because of pregnancy, 20.6% resigned to seek employment in some other geographic area, 14.5% resigned for another job in the system, 1.5% were drafted or left to join the Peace Corps, 14.1% resigned by request or were not reappointed, and 5.3% left for other reasons. The total turnover for the year was 14.8% of the total professional staff, which was lower than the 1968 national norm for similar areas. Administrators had the greatest turnover of any group, followed by pupil personnel specialists, and then by teachers. (EV)
