Warrick Co school board approves hiring of additional teachers


WARRICK COUNTY, Ind. (WEHT) — The Warrick County school board is scheduled to meet at 7 p.m. Monday.

Classes are scheduled to resume in the district Wednesday.

“I know the teachers are extremely excited about welcoming the kids back into the building. We’re looking forward to a new school year even though it’s going to be different. I think everyone understands that, but I just think seeing the kids, seeing how excited they are to be back in school, that’s always a positive experience,” superintendent Brad Schneider said.

The board approved employing 14 additional teachers, some in a temporary capacity.

Schneider says the district has spent more than $1 million on staffing and buying PPE and sanitizing equipment. He says even though this school year will have challenges, it will be a positive year.

“We’re going to maintain a positive learning environment in the schools. We understand people are anxious, because we are trying to go to school through a pandemic. So that’s not an easy task. And if we’re going to be successful, we’re going to have to work together as a team, which means everyone’s going to have to do their part,” Schneider said.
