SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah-Chatham school leaders are still looking for qualified school teachers as this year wraps up. The district has more than 300 positions to fill before next year starts.

The district said they’re making progress on hiring for the open positions. In fact, they’ve hired about 60 people since we first reported these openings about a month ago. 

The director of employment for the district said the number of open positions is about what they see every year. With 55 schools and about 3000 teachers, they say 400 is nothing to worry about. They are targeting people nationwide, hoping to use the attraction of Savannah as a tool to get people to move. We did ask if the openings are spread across the district or focused on a few schools.

“With 55 schools, we have vacancies all over. That quickly adds up to 400. We do have one school that’s a turnaround and that’s Shuman Elementary. We are hiring about 50 percent of the staff as a new staff,” said Heather Bilton, the SCCPSS Director of Employment.

There are openings at elementary, middle and high schools, district-wide. The natural question for some is: how do I sign up? The district is holding a job fair in June. You can find all this info and more by visiting this website.
