ISD busy filling teacher vacancies

June 29, 2012

Like many businesses in West Texas, Big Spring Independent School District is having to fight the competition for workers.

BSISD trustees learned during their special meeting Thursday that the district is facing a slightly larger-than-normal number of staff vacancies this summer. And the major reason for that, officials speculated, is simple economics.

“We can't compete with salaries paid in Midland and Odessa and some other areas,” BSISD Superintendent Steven Saldivar told trustees. “We lost some very good teachers this past year, and we're very concerned about that.”
