Estimating the Costs of Hiring Across Schools

Hiring effective educators is a key priority for school districts, yet little information exists about the resource and capacity costs of recruitment efforts. WEPC has partnered with IPS to estimate the costs of hiring in the district using a combination of survey and administrative data. In addition to providing IPS leadership with directly relevant information about the efficiency and efficacy of their efforts to bring in new talent, the results of this project contribute to our broader understanding of how schools expend resources on teacher recruitment and hiring.
