As Lancaster County schools rush to complete major construction projects for the start of the school year, one thing worries Superintendent Jonathan Phipps even more – a shortage of teachers.
Going into this school year, Lancaster County School District faced more than 160 openings among 1,005 teaching positions.
The district has hired 147 teachers – “the most we’ve ever had,” Phipps said.
Overall, the district has hired 245 employees for this school year, with only 15 more teacher openings to be filled.
