Avon School District filled their opening for teachers

AVON, S.D.(WNAX)- Finding and hiring teachers was and is a struggle for many school districts.

Avon School Superintendent Tom Culver says they covered their openings, but it went down to the deadline. He says filling their special education slot was especially tricky.

Culver says he helped the new hire through the certification.

Culver says they used local connections to fill many openings.

Many districts got one or two applicants for each open teaching position.
