Recruitment Crisis at Sac City

SHARE

Recent reports in the media capture Sac City’s growing crisis to recruit and retain teachers.  Both the Sacramento BeeABC-10 News  and CBS News 13 detail the District’s self-inflicted crisis of underpaying educators.

Unfortunately, rather than address the real problem , Sac City has resorted to going to the Philippines to hire teachers, particularly in special education.  We welcome the educators from the Philippines, but have raised concerns regarding the lack of support the District has provided to them.  No other district in the region has as many vacancies as Sac City, even though Sac City is in the best financial position in its history.  

In a recent communication, School Board President Jay Hansen conceded that low educator pay puts students at risk.

A much simpler, longer lasting solution would be to make salaries more competitive–an argument we will be making in fact-finding very shortly.
