On behalf of the Illinois Association of Regional Superintendents of Schools (IARSS) we are asking you to complete the 2021 Educator Shortage survey. Since 2015 the IARSS has conducted a survey to inform state policies with respect to reciprocity, regulations to support educators as professionals, and alternative routes to licensure and endorsements.
Sections 7 and 8 of the survey asks you to identify the number of positions that you needed to fill for the 2020-2021 academic year and how you resolved those openings. To streamline those sections, you may download the following template and fill it out prior to starting the survey.
Click HERE to download the template: Educator Shortage by Area AY22.
You may email the completed template to Tom Withee at firstname.lastname@example.org in lieu of answering sections 7 and 8 of the survey.
You should have received an email with a link to complete the survey. If you did not receive an email to complete the survey, please contact Tom Withee.
