NOW: Teacher shortage not a concern for SBCSC


SOUTH BEND, Ind.—Amidst a state-wide shortage of teachers, reps from South Bend Community School Corporation say they aren’t worried about filling open positions.

At Monday’s school meeting, the board approved hiring thirty new teachers.

According to school representative Sue Coney, over thirty more teachers are currently in the process of being hired. All are expected to begin work by the first day of school on August 16th.

While that still leaves several dozen positions, board president Stan Wruble says he’s confident they’ll be filled soon.

“I think there’s a teacher shortage in Indiana, but that’s across the state. There’s a shortage across the nation as well. I think were in relatively good shape in our district we are aggressively recruiting and hiring teachers,” says Wruble.
