This brief examines the mobility of public school teachers and principals (including assistant principals) in Minnesota and presents annual and five-year mobility rates between 2006/07 and 2010/11. An average of 9.5 percent of teachers changed schools between consecutive years, and 20.8 percent changed schools within a five-year span. Teachers were more likely to move to another school if they had less teaching experience, were in an urban school, or taught in a school with lower academic performance, fewer students, or more economically disadvantaged students. For principals the annual mobility rate averaged 10.5 percent, and the five-year mobility rate was 29.3 percent. Principals were more likely to move to another school if they had less experience or were in a school with lower academic performance or with more economically disadvantaged students. Principals' years of experience, as well as the percentage of students in the school who were academically proficient and the percentage who were economically disadvantaged, predicted their annual and five-year mobility rates.
