Schools looking to fill their teaching positions

PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- With the start of classes about a month away, school districts across the state are filling in their last teaching openings.

Wade Pogany, Executive Director of the Associated School Boards of South Dakota, says there are lots of needs.

Pogany says there are still quite a few openings.

Pogany says schools will figure out a way to fill most of the open slots.

Pogany says many of the openings are created by veteran teachers retiring.
