Support Students Now!

#KeepPSDOpen

The Peninsula School District is aware that staff current shortages due to COVID-19 related illness and quarantine are very real and especially prevalent for our schools during the Omicron variant surge.  In response to the ongoing staffing shortage, Peninsula School District has prioritized and implemented a program that creates a streamlined process to recruit and hire temporary workers in our schools.  

This program, called Support Students Now, is a call to our community members to temporarily fill open teaching and support positions and will allow for short-term flexibility to lessen the barriers that delay the hiring of substitute teachers and support staff with the goal to keep our schools open for in-person learning so that Peninsula School District can continue to serve our community's children.
