Warren County School District Expects On-Time Start

After hiring half the number of remaining teachers needed for the start of the school year, school board members weighed the pros and cons of a long-standing practice.

The board formalized the hiring of six new teachers at Monday’s regular meeting. Superintendent Amy Stewart said there are six positions remaining to be filled. The board will hold a special meeting on Aug. 29, giving the members one more opportunity to fill those positions before school starts on Aug. 31.

Stewart said districts statewide have been asked to notify their intermediate units if they plan to delay the start of their school years due to staffing issues.

“We are on target,” she said. “I reported that we were going to be business-as-usual and starting on time.”
