The amount of friends I have retiring and open positions is a testament to the fact that a lot of directors did leave. I don't have actual data here, but my gut feeling is there have been a significant number of openings this year compared to 2019! I think like with lower STAAR scores, districts that stayed virtual are having a greater turnover of personnel. In my district we weren't virtual that long, but the campus that didn't require masks seems to have had a huuuuge turnover too. Teachers are only going to work their thankless jobs if they feel like they're supported.
I think if someone is close to retirement and in a virtual setting all/most of the year they may not have wanted to do the rebuilding. Even in our district I know it's going to be a long while before we're back up to full levels of where we were!
