Danville Public Schools Still Short on Teachers

Danville, VA - Danville Public Schools have never been this short on teachers this late in the year, according to the acting superintendent Kathy Osborne.According to Osborne, as of noon Thursday, they are still in need of 21 full time teachers and one part time teacher. Osborne said that they are in the process of hiring about half of those teachers. She said if they can't fill all of the spots by the time school starts on Monday, they will have substitutes in those classrooms.Osborne says a reason they are so short on teachers is because they are being very particular about who they hire.
