With about a week to go before school starts in Cheatham County, the Director of Schools says the district is nearly at full staff.
Back in May, Nashville's News 2 reported that as much as 25% of the teaching staff in Cheatham County resigned at the end of the school year, according to numbers from the Tennessee Education Association.
The Cheatham County School District disputed those numbers.
Even still, dozens of teaching positions had to be filled over the summer.
At Monday's school board meeting, Schools Director Dr. Stan Curtis told Nashville's News 2 that nearly all of the vacant positions have been filled, leaving only one math position open when school starts.
Also at Monday's meeting, a presentation detailed improvements in student testing last school year.
As a result of those improvements, Dr. Curtis will likely receive a bonus of as much as $15,000 this year.
Curtis said he plans to donate the full amount of that bonus to a teacher appreciation fund.
