Substitute teachers play a vital part in keeping classrooms on task while the regular teacher is away. Kewaunee County boasts some of the best academic success in Wisconsin thanks to hard working teachers. Unfortunately, being able to call upon a dedicated and consistent bank of substitute teachers is slowing the county down. Luxemburg-Casco Superintendent Glenn Schlender says plans are in the works to address their substitute shortage.
The Luxemburg-Casco school district continuously provides high-quality education for their students and ranks in the top 75 districts in Wisconsin with a B+ overall rating. Schlender is confident that bringing in a more consistent base of substitute teachers will alleviate some of the district’s recent struggles and provide area youth with the education they all deserve.
