SLPS scrambling to fill teacher vacancies

   The St. Louis Public Schools are looking for teachers.  The district is trying to replace more than 50 teachers who've resigned in the past 10 weeks.  District officials say half of the teachers who've resigned this year, did so after the first day of school.

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the 72-school city system faces two challenges in retaining quality teachers: lower pay than in neighboring districts, and greater challenges.  

   Rick Sullivan, president of the district’s Special Administrative Board, told the paper that keeping talented teachers and principals, and mentoring new hires, is a constant challenge in the district.

Belleville 201 teachers to get pay raise

   Even as some metro-east school districts continue to wrestle with budget shortfalls, Belleville District 201 teachers will be getting a pay raise.  

   The Belleville News-Democrat reports that the school board Monday night unanimously approved a partial salary step increase this year and next.  Superintendent Jeff Dosier told the paper that instead of a full step increase, teachers will get 75 percent of a step increase.  

   The cost of the pay raises will be covered by retirements and vacant teaching positions not being filled.  

   The teachers' new contract goes into effect September 1st.

   The school board also approved new contracts with the district's custodians, engineers and teacher aids.
