Teacher opening only for this year
A classified ad in last week’s Tahoe Daily Tribune for an elementary teacher in Lake Tahoe Unified School District is for the remainder of this year – not next, said Beth Delacour, human resources director.
The district slashed dozens of teacher positions for next school year to remain fiscally solvent and eyebrows were raised regarding the ad. Delacour said a high school teacher resigned in March and the position was filled by an Al Tahoe Elementary teacher who requested a transfer.
“So between now and the end of the year we really have an open position,” Delacour said. “I don’t have a (substitute) coming back to it or somebody from leave coming back to it.”
