Vienna High School is helping out a nearby school district dealing with a teacher shortage
One southern Illinois school district has reached an agreement to send some of its students to another district about 20 miles away.
Due to the ongoing teacher shortage, Dongola Unit 66 in Union County announced its freshman and sophomore students will attend some core academic classes at Vienna High School during the next academic year.
Vienna Superintendent Joshua Stafford says this partnership is in the development stage and there are many questions to be answered on how this will work.
He says the details will be worked out over the coming weeks and both schools are seeking feedback from their communities.
This past academic year, Dongola High School sent some of its students to Shawnee Community College in Ullin for certain classes.
