Educator Recruitment

Rhode Island, like other states across the nation, is experiencing teacher shortages; recruitment and hiring practices are a critical component in addressing these shortages. Research tells us to prioritize the hiring of a highly qualified, learner-ready, diverse educator workforce. The Equitable and Inclusive Hiring Practice Guidance is a compilation of promising recruitment, hiring, and onboarding practices developed for school and district leaders, HR professionals, and school-based hiring teams. These resources expand on RIDE’s continued focus to improve equity and inclusion throughout Rhode Island public schools. The video below aims to provide a brief overview of the guidance.
