K12 Insight benchmarking report shows school employees engaged at work, lack of appreciation
Study provides insights on the perceptions and experiences of teachers, staff, and administrators
November 4, 2021 – K12 Insight today released its 2020-21 Benchmark Report on District- and School-Level Employee Engagement.
This benchmarking study on employee engagement in schools provides critical insights on the perceptions and experiences of teachers, staff, and administrators regarding engagement, feedback and recognition, professional development, support, and safety and behavior.
“As we enter the third school year since the start of the pandemic, it’s never been more important to understand employee perceptions and experiences at the district and school levels,” K12 Insight Head of Research Jennifer Coisson said. “Between retirements and those leaving the profession due to burnout and frustration, teachers and staff are leaving faster than they can be replaced. School districts that take the time to listen to teachers and staff can make adjustments to positively impact employee quality, retention, and engagement.”
The study, implemented by K12 Insight’s Managed Research team, analyzed employee engagement among in-person, remote, and hybrid employees at 14 school districts across the United States.
Among the participating employees from the school districts analyzed for this report:
