170 New Teachers Hired

The Rockford School District had to hire 170 new teachers. This is down quite a bit from last year when there was a mass exodus of teachers retiring. As most schools start Thursday, only 10 positions are vacant.

Last year administrators went to Madrid, Spain to recruit bilingual teachers. Now the demand focuses on special education and reading teachers to handle increasing enrollment.
