The purpose of this study was to examine and identify the administrative strategies that are being applied in two special education programs with intention of increasing teacher retention. The measurement tool was a survey. The study involved participants completing a 10 question Likert survey and evaluating the results. The survey results demonstrated both positive and negative tendencies in the surveyed strategies of administrative support. Further research with an in-depth survey with wider circulation might provide a sound basis for implementing more effective professional development.
