This post is a running record of teachers leaving ASK. As we get new and updated information, we will make changes to this page.
- 18 teachers are departing ASK from the high school.
- There are 47 teachers (not counting the Arabic/Religion department), so this is a turnover of 38%.
5 teachers are departing ASK from the middle school.
- We have received word that there are 8 faculty members leaving the middle school (including 1 administrator and 7 teachers).
- We were also told that 3 teachers are transferring, but we would like to note that we are not tracking teachers that are transferring within ASK, only teachers that are totally leaving the school. While a teacher transferring does create another position for which to hire, it also fills a position elsewhere.
- There are 27 teachers (maybe 26, but we will use 27 for now) (non Arabic/Religion) in the middle school, so this is a turnover of 26%.
- 22 teachers are departing ASK from the elementary school. We can confirm 63 (non Arabic/Religion) teachers in the elementary school, so this is a turnover of 35%.
4547 teachers are leaving ASK. (wow) Wikipedia reports 183 total faculty, so this is a turnover of 25%, which is quite large. We will work to confirm the 183 number, and also to break this down versus local and foreign hire faculty as we update this page.
- We now have the numbers of faculty, not including Arabic/Religion faculty, for each school and can more accurately reflect the total turnover rate for foreign-hire teachers. Out of 137 teachers, there are 47 leaving, which is a turnover of 34.3%
Note: We are not including Arabic or Religion teachers in our numbers. This is because these teachers report to different administrators and generally are structured totally differently from all of the other teachers at the school. The Arabic and Religion faculty stand apart from the other teachers at the school in many statistically significant ways – the biggest being that none of them are on a foreign-hire contract (that we know of). Each level of the school (elementary, middle, and high) has a different relationship between the Arabic/Religion faculty and the other faculty, and we currently don’t know how to adequately explain these relationships while reporting data.
This post addresses the following parts of our mission statement and beliefs:
- Educate the ASK community about current events at the school.
