Employment of Preparation Program Completers in Massachusetts Public Schools

This report provides the percentage of program completers who were employed in a Massachusetts public school or district by June of the report year. Employment rates are reported by program completion year, program type, program subject area, and top employing districts. Employment is determined by matching program completers reported by preparation program providers with employment data collected from districts in the Education Personnel Information Management System (EPIMS). The number in retention cohort includes the number of program completers employed at least one year prior to the report year, and is the denominator for the retention rates. More about the data…

Note: Data only include program completers who became employed in a Massachusetts public, K-12 school, including charter schools, and collaboratives. The data do not include employment in private schools or outside of Massachusetts. Additional contextual information is provided by the educator preparation program under 'Employment Rates Context'.

A dash indicates that there were fewer than six program completers, therefore employment data is not reported. For more information on how employment and retention rates are calculated, see the About the Data page.


Employment Rates Context

Boston University and its School of Education attract students from across the country and around the world. Many students are not from Massachusetts and frequently choose other destination states after graduation. Boston University is comprised of 16 schools and colleges, with more than 32,500 students, at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, from all 50 states and 135 foreign countries. University-wide 82% of first time, first year students (freshmen) are from out of state.
