After a summer rush to transfer 114 teachers out of Pinellas' most struggling elementary schools and find replacements, 16 teachers have left those schools in the Transformation Zone before the end of the first semester.

Melrose Elementary in St. Petersburg lost the most teachers: five out of a staff of 46. Maximo and Fairmount Park elementary schools also in St. Petersburg lost three teachers each. High Point Elementary in Clearwater and Lakewood Elementary each lost two teachers.

Midtown Academy, formerly known as University Preparatory Academy charter school, lost one teacher. Campbell Park Elementary in St. Petersburg and Sandy Lane Elementary in Clearwater haven't lost any teachers.
