Teacher Shortage Survey

NEBRASKA TEACHER SHORTAGE

The 2017-2018 Teacher Vacancy Survey was conducted in the fall of 2017 by the Nebraska Department of Education.  For purposes of this report, the Educational Service Unit (ESU) data has been combined with the public school data (district) while the nonpublic data (system) is combined with them into the total counts. The data from the Teacher Shortage Survey is then summarized and communicated to the US Department of Education (USDE) and educational entities throughout the state.


NOTE: Shortage areas in Nebraska, determined by the 2017 survey, are reported in Nebraska and proposed to the USDE as shortage areas for the 2018-19 academic year.
