Could anybody shed light on teachers opening in Prince George County, MD? Unfortunately, many Filipino teachers' visa is expiring or will expire soon. Will there be a lot of vacant positions? What will be district's hiring policy?

Going to be a tough year.

They're offering big retirement incentives to get people off of the payroll.

The school budgets are being constricted immensely.

Some schools are choosing to lose teachers, others are sacrificing support staff to maintain their teaching staff.

Can't hurt to apply, but I think it's going to be tight this year.

Most schools, unless they have a large increase in enrollment, are going to lose staff this year. I don't know the exact ratios as far as levels go. We're looking at losing at least one in every core department and possibly at least one position each in Art and Family/Consumer Science along with a NJROTC slot and possibly PE. That's in addition to the Librarian/Media Specialist being cut to 1/2 time. It will be interesting what MSDE says about that since COMAR mandates that high schools have a full-time Media Specialist.

A school that has a high population of FARM or ESOL gets significantly more money for staffing.

Also, all the Sasscer folks that got moved to the classroom have been jockeying for positions back at Sasscer since August. Some have already been moved.

The two year Race To The Top money is 3/4 gone and the 2nd year just started, so expect some churn there.

The retirement incentive probably won't convince anyone to retire that wasn't already likely going to. It isn't enough money and it's capped at 20% of your gross base pay. The Admin likes to tout it as $20K but for most teachers it won't reach that.

As always, PG has a shortage in Math, Science, Spec Ed and ESOL along with specialists like Speech Pathologists.
