Are part time. All right, there is actually one full-time position, but I can guarantee that's only because it's highly specialized and no one will move to a rural location to do it unless it's full-time. So four full time teachers retire, and their jobs come back as .50 FTE (.62 for the lucky ducks that get prep time). I hope this trend doesn't continue when I'm looking for a job next year. There's no way I could live on half a first year teacher's salary. Is this a common trend? I don't know how they're working this out...but how can you have two .50 gen ed teachers? What, one teacher teaches in the morning and the other in the afternoon to reduce costs to the district? The only other thing I can think of is that they have candidates in mind, and by splitting jobs can reduce applicants and allow these individuals to take both and become 1.0FTE. Rural schools will be rural, gotta' love the ol' boys' club.
