NATCHEZ, Mississippi — The NatchezAdams School District is looking to fill 43 vacant teaching positions before school starts in August.
School district spokesman Steven Richardson tells The Natchez Democrat (http://bit.ly/1Uw2rqe ) that the district is visiting career fairs and working with Natchez Inc. and the NatchezAdams Chamber of Commerce to find attractions that could be offered to a younger crowd of teachers.
Richardson says the district had 63 openings at this time last year.
He says teachers are needed in special education, math and science, physical education, English, business, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), Spanish, elementary education and gifted student education.
The school system employed 267 teachers and 89 teacher's assistants to instruct its 3,546 students at its eight schools at the end of the 201415 school year.
