• Teacher Shortage

    Ankeny Schools support addressing the growing teacher shortage throughout the state. In Ankeny, we are fortunate to have a highly qualified teacher in every classroom. In order to maintain this goal, we must have access to a highly qualified job pool. The growing teacher shortage in our state is causing many district’s to look to find ways to incentivize new hires, especially for difficult-to-fill positions, leading to increased costs to build and maintain a top performing workforce.
