Home-grown: Christian County focuses on local crop to find teachers

Don Ahart, personnel director for Christian County Public Schools, told the Board of Education last Thursday that annual turnover among teachers is about 12 percent. Ahart also said the minority numbers on the teaching force, about 10 percent, were too low.

Teacher recruitment efforts will concentrate on homegrown candidates and better classroom managers, public schools sources say. It is hoped this change in tactics will improve the district’s chances of keeping the teachers it hires.
