LCV8 group members chose to focus on the retention rate of teachers in the Lowcountry with a specific focus on Brentwood Middle School. After examining demographic data on the school, teachers, and students, group members found a disconnect existing between the teacher population and its relationships to both the students and the district administration. LCV8 proposed many changes that should take place in order to reduce the turnover rate among teachers at Brentwood. These suggestions included an additional salary bonus for teachers and increased communication between district administrators and teachers. Also, LCV8 members suggested that teachers participate in a diversity management training program to enhance their interaction with coworkers and students.
