Lafayette Parish School System(LPSS) is declaring a critical shortage of full time K-12 classroom teachers.
Taking this action will allow LPSS to hire certified, well-qualified retired teachers to serve in
positions that are vacant at this time, approximately forty to fifty positions.
In following the Teachers' Retirement System of Louisiana's procedures in declaring this critical
shortage, the full time K-12 classroom teacher vacant positions will be advertised in local classifieds within the coming week and will be posted on their website at www.lpssonline.com.
According to LPSS Spokesperson Angela Morrison, the shortage is a result from not having a current budget that has been adopted by the Lafayette Parish School Board. Teachers are not taking offers because they fear that the board may declare a Reduction In Force (RIF), stated Morrison.
