Where Have All the Teachers Gone? A Community Conversation

Updated: Nov 12, 2022

Nationally there is a trend in educators and school staff leaving this important profession. Is this the case for Washoe County School District and other districts in the Truckee Meadows Area? Join us as we learn more about the challenges and opportunities in education today.

As more trained professionals leave education across the country, communities are facing a growing crisis. Some communities are exploring 4-day school weeks to increase teacher retention, some are paying retired teachers to come back from retirement, and some simply having to eliminate classes and educational offerings for students. Join us as we learn more about this national crisis and to what extent we are seeing these issues locally. Discover what leaders are doing to proactively address issues and demonstrate how they value and support those caring for and leading our most important community asset: students.

RSVP appreciated but NOT required!
