Discover how your district can fill critical gaps in the educator workforce with innovative answers to a challenging problem


As schools opened their doors this fall, one of the biggest challenges on school leaders’ minds: filling teaching vacancies and addressing teacher shortages.

School districts nationwide are facing unprecedented teacher shortages, with thousands of classrooms unstaffed as the school year begins. Filling these vacancies with certified teachers is a critical need.

With no end in sight to this teacher crisis, some districts across the country are filling instructional gaps utilizing non-traditional teaching and learning models.

In this eSchool News webinar, you’ll hear how districts are working on innovative solutions education leaders can put into place for a single class, school, or the entire district to launch this school year with a fully qualified and certified instructional team.

Experts will discuss:

  • Filling vacancies immediately with certified remote teachers for a single class, school, or the entire districts
  • Filling critical instructional gaps, expanding course offerings, personalizing learning, or reducing class size with blended or fully online programs
  • Empowering learners with tools and resources necessary for high quality education
