Any ideas on how to get in with Dallastiwn Schooks? Seems like teachers don't leave. I've thought about bolubteeringvthere when possible to build some relationships and hopefully some connections.

Any other districts worth trying that have competitive salaries?

Dallastown is a highly desired district for employment and education, so you are correct in your realizing that teachers don't leave until retirement. Jobs in Dallastown, Suburban, Central and most of the other districts are very competitive because the cost of living is reasonable, and on a teacher's salary one can live comfortably in York. All of the districts have their advantages and disadvantages, so getting a teaching job in another district would still be a good thing. With the exception of teaching in York City, most districts would be fine to work in.

I know that for some subjects; English and Elementary or Art education there are often 200+ applicant's for one position/opening. Many districts look for dual certification, highly qualified (in one subject area), or for those teachers who will also take on an advisory/coaching position as well.

You might want to try getting in with the Lincoln Intermediate Unit (headquartered in New Oxford). They place classroom aides in many of the districts and they also staff special classrooms all over York County. If you have a valid PA teaching certificate you can substitute teach or start as a classroom aide to establish yourself within a school district.
