    It was just on the Yahoo news feed.

    And it's not terribly hard to find doomy information right now.

    But it's much easier to ignore the doomsday information, or better yet, don't even click on it.

    Anyone familiar with the Good News Network? Amidst all the craziness, I love starting off my day on a positive note by reading their daily Good News In History.

    I am currently looking for a new position. It's been hard because not much has been posted. Then, I read an article about how in GA, state agencies will face a 14% budget cut!!!! That is insane and it will be devastating to schools. https://www.ajc.com/news/state--reg...ing-cuts-due-pandemic/tLrAiX29jBWzIizTLzX8wN/

    It’s weird because ALL the districts around me are scrambling to find math teachers. They haven’t stopped hiring.

    Is there a high turnover rate in your district?

    My district has over 100 listed positions for certified teachers, maybe 25 for various admin/counselors/nurses, and around 75 for classified positions.

    No, not at all. We usually have only 2-3 resignations a year (in a district of 600 teachers) and a few retirements.

    What is a “classified” position? That’s not a term we use here.

    We use the term classified here, too. It’s support staff: instructional aides, custodians, office staff—basically anyone who’s not credentialed.

    Got it. We just call that “non-certified” here.
