Teacher Hiring Forecast

Teacher Hiring Forecast
Posted on 04/13/2017
SPS is actively recruiting and hiring teachers for the 2017-18 school year. However, in some subject areas there are current teachers who have not secured a position for next school year. In some subject areas, we have ample vacancies for those teachers to fill, but in some cases, we may only have just enough for internal teachers to fill and are not currently hiring externally. This page lets current and prospective teachers know the hiring status of positions by subject area.
