Teacher Vacancy Information

The Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) conducted the 2021-22 Teacher Vacancy Survey in the fall of 2021. All public-school districts, nonpublic school systems and Educational Service Units (ESU) have been included in the collection of data. For purposes of this report, the ESU data has been combined with the public-school data (district) while the nonpublic data (system) is combined with them into the total counts. This summary shows the totals. For the separate district and system counts, see the full report.

S.E.E.D. Frequently Asked Questions – **Updated May 20, 2021**

In April of 2020, the Nebraska State Board of Education ( SBOE ) made a commitment to a common language of effectiveness for all Nebraska school teachers and leaders by approving revisions to the Nebraska Teacher and Principal Performance Standards ( NTPPS ). These standards provide a structure designed to address the complexities of teaching and leading.

The Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) provides videos of conversations about the standards through the lens of a student, teacher, principal, Educational Service Unit, Higher Education Educator Preparation Program, and NDE.  Listen to Nebraska educators speak from their perspective about the standards, the support they offer teachers, and the alignment of work across the state educational system.  All videos are 14 to 16 minutes in length.  S.E.E.D. video links.
