SCS Searching for Spanish Teacher

Written By The Mountain Eagle on 2/29/24 | 2/29/24

Will Use Distance Learning for the Rest of the School Year

By David Avitabile

SCHOHARIE - Schoharie Central School has been searching for a Spanish teacher for their seventh and eighth graders since the summer. Their search is not over, but after some long-term substitutes, the district has decided to go with a distance learning class for the rest of the year.

High school Principal Kevin Calacone spoke to school board members about the switch at the February 15 board meeting. The distance learning program was to begin on February 26 with a certified teacher. The school sent a letter home to parents informing them of the change.

Though they have had no luck finding a certified teacher, they will post the position again for the fall, Dr. Calacone said.
