NPS Staffing Update - Volunteer News!

Staffing Update & Volunteer News
 
In response to the challenges the District is experiencing regarding staffing, we are pleased to report that we have hired six new substitute teachers, and are using student workers to fill the gaps in some of our classified positions.
 
In addition, two of our principals and our HR Manager met with staff at NSHC last week to share information regarding volunteering in our schools.  
 
We would also like to give a big shout-out to Kawerak for increasing the number of volunteer hours for their staff members to encourage them to support the needs in our schools.
 
We are also very excited to announce the upcoming roll-out of our new volunteer portal, which will make it easier for parents, guardians, family members and community members to sign-up to help in our schools.  
 
Potential volunteers will need to complete a simple application and pass a background check prior to working in the schools - please click here for information on how to apply to be a paid substitute teacher (half days or full days with a schedule that YOU control), or apply for any of our open classified positions.
