Congratulations to Lake Erie Preparatory Academy for winning an Outstanding Teacher Retention award at the annual leadership summit held this July. Despite an ongoing shortage of teachers nationwide, Lake Erie was one of 12 schools recognized for creating a thriving workplace that retains talented and engaged teachers. The school was one of seven across the network of schools that achieved 100% teacher retention in 2023.
Recognizing the hard work and success of our schools and school leaders is an important tradition at ACCEL Schools. While schools across the country are still recovering from challenges related to the pandemic, we have seen a surge in success from schools serving historically underrecognized communities.
“We are mission driven to make quality education available to all children regardless of geographic location or life circumstances,” said ACCEL Schools CEO Ron Packard who presented the awards on July 17. “It is an honor to recognize the staff and leadership who are putting ACCEL’s ideals into action and creating positive change in the lives of the students and communities who need it most.”
Congratulations to every member of our Lake Erie community for contributing to our success in 2023. We are honored to accept this Accely award on behalf of our entire team and look forward to another extraordinary school year.
