CTX school districts are in dire need of substitute teachers and calling for immediate help. 

With the rise in COVID-19 cases due to the new Omicron variant many teachers and staff members have been forced to call out of school and the districts are feeling it. According to KWTX, Rachel Bourrage with the Killeen Educator’s Association says “Everyone is tired, the morale is low and everyone needs help,”

She also said that teachers and staff members are being forced to pick up other classes and if it's not enough room they're moving to the gym or cafeteria. 

Most districts have exhausted all possibilities from teachers taking over more than one class to administration rolling up their sleeves and joining classrooms. 

Things are so tough now that both Killeen ISD and Midway ISD sent messages to parents making them aware of the lack of help and asking them to apply for custodial positions and substitute teaching positions. 

So here's the big question; How can we get through this? 

if you or anyone you may know is available to help out our local school districts you should apply for all open positions. Districts such as Midway ISD require all those interested to first pass a background check and undergo training to begin working. if you meet the qualifications you are encouraged to apply. 

As a community, we must help as much as we can so that our babies continue to receive a quality education. If the school districts have to continue operating short-staffed they will be forced to shut down.

Visit Midway ISD or Killeen ISD for more information on how to apply.
