Between March 1, 2020 and Jan. 13, 2021, more than 1,000 employees opted to leave the Killeen Independent School District, according to data provided by the Killeen Educators Association. This list, compiled by the Herald, divides the data by school, position, and resignation or retirement date.

I also work at one of these schools and I'm not sure if the Herald is trying to say the employees left because of COVID but I know that only one of our staff members left on that account. The others left because our admin is just not nice. We lose wonderful, seasoned teachers and aides every yr for the past three yrs because of this. I'm surprised no one in leadership is noticing this. We also have many positions that were left unfilled which causes the rest of the staff to be over worked and stressed.

So this list lacks tremendously in context. For example, I work at one of the schools on this list 5 of the positions listed were empty positions that were closed instead of rehiring for them. They are not people who left the school district. 4 of the 5 have been empty for over a year. Why does the Herald hate KISD so much, that they would waste their time posting a pointless list, just to try to make the school district look bad?

I tried to agree with you Killeen patriot and posted a comment but the Herald took it down immediately.
