I pulled the information I sent from the AEIS report. Maybe the years
are different. Here's the way the number I sent was calculated:

Turnover Rate for Teachers (District Profile only): This percent shows
the total FTE count of teachers from the fall of 2008-09 who were
subsequently not employed in the district in the fall of 2009-10,
divided by the total teacher FTE count for the fall of 2008-09. Social
security numbers for teachers employed in the district in the fall of
2008-09 were checked to verify their employment status in the same
district in the fall of 2009-10. Staff who remained employed in the
district but not as teachers were also counted toward teacher turnover.

Thanks on 12 percent. I saw 15 percent in Snapshot 2009.
