Four teachers who were affected by Jackson County Schools during recent layoffs have already been hired back to the system for next school year. Superintendent April Howard said additional resignations have allowed for the rehires.
“It’s always bittersweet when you lose folks, but (when) they vacate positions it allows us to be able to extend an offer,” she said.
