Kansas schools are still struggling to hire teachers. There are more than 600 vacant teaching positions in Kansas, nearly 100 more than in the fall of 2017. Special education and elementary positions have the largest number of vacancies.

The Kansas State Board of Education received the update on Tuesday from the Teacher Vacancy and Supply Committee. The main reason for the open positions is a lack of applicants or qualified applicants.

The committee also hinted that the vacancy numbers could be worse than reported, as some schools have been reluctant to report open positions.
