article in today's FTW paper about the 60 teachers FTW ISD gave contracts to that are more than the teaching spots they have...
they will be on contract and put into the substitute pool (if they can stand it)--district/article says that some of them may have regular assignments as year goes on with teachers that retire or leave their jobs for other reasons...article also mentions the bad economy as reason fewer teachers left than normal...

some extras unassigned are from teachers hired during FTW ISD mega hiring blitz in states like CA and FL to get teachers that could speak/teach in Spanish and also I guess in math and science since that seems to be what all districts want...

some of them are from reassignments because of the alt cert--maybe they did finish their certification and had to be offered contract, some of them from reassignment because of the schools that failed to meet scoring standards...

article also mentions that Dallas has about 20 extra teachers and Arlington ISD 'normally" has a surfeit of teachers under contract at beginning of year...
