The issues with school staff retention

Satchel Pulse allows school and community stakeholders to better understand in addition to reducing workloads.

Disparate thinking

There is often a disconnect between teachers and their leaders when it comes to why teachers leave the profession. Teachers and administrators do not seem to be on the same page when it comes to understanding the reasons why a teacher may leave a building.

Administrative burdens

Building staff members often report administrative tasks such as paperwork and meetings as a primary barrier to their work. Increased workloads can make it difficult to prioritize the real work of supporting student growth and achievement.


Burnout happens for many reasons including feeling undervalued and overworked. Teachers and leaders may experience burnout when they continuously feel unheard, misunderstood, and are expected to comply with a number of tedious, time-consuming tasks.

We are utilizing the Satchel Pulse data to develop an entire Culture/Climate plan. It is such a great data source because we have trend data over the last few years of use. We would not be able to identify issues without this data. It has been a valuable tool and I would highly recommend it!

The survey took very little time and the interface was student friendly. The students especially liked using the sliding scale with the different faces instead of numbers or words, that made it easier for them.
