The Vernon School District is adding 11 elementary and five secondary full-time teachers to it’s staff as part of the added funding coming from the Province as part of the court order over the teacher’s contract.
Board Chair Kelly Smith says the selection process for those teachers took place last (Wednesday) night at Vernon Senior Secondary.
“Principals were spending time at VSS actually interviewing people and many of the new hires are probably done by now.”
“You can imagine the hectic pace that everyone has been working under lately to come up with solutions to these issues of class size and composition in the District to find the best solutions.”
The new teachers start their new positions Monday.
