Like other school districts and industries, Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools continues to experience staffing shortages unlike any the district has seen in its history.

Just last month, the staffing crisis and inability to find substitutes forced the district to temporarily move to distance learning. Now, as a district, we continue to implement various strategies to address the crisis including parent/guardian volunteers, administrators and staff stepping up to fill vacancies.

Dr. Teri Staloch is the superintendent of Prior Lake-Savage Area Schools.
