NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - After starting off the summer with more than 60 vacant positions, the Natchez-Adams School District has closed the gap to 21.

Interim Superintendent Fred Butcher tells The Natchez Democrat (http://bit.ly/29m9lNP) the district needs four English teachers, two math teachers, two biology teachers, a chemistry teacher, two physical education teachers and the remainder of needed staff are at the elementary level, including fifth grade science and math.

Butcher said the majority of the 40 hires have been certified teachers, but in some cases they have had to hire teachers who have the coursework but who have not yet taken or passed the certification tests.
