So far this school year, the Vallejo City Unified School District has filled more than 100 classroom vacancies, said a district official Wednesday night during the VCUSD Board of Education meeting.
Gigi Patrick, VCUSD’s Director of Human Resources, informed the board that 12 classroom vacancies have yet to be filled: Six at the high school, one middle school, two elementary and three special education levels.
“We interviewed 342 candidates and offered 176 contracts to potential hires with 109 classroom vacancies (being) filled,” Patrick said to the board.
Patrick informed the board that the number of hires for the current school year increased during the last two years from 22 and 70 teachers, respectively.
