Schools need 199 more teachers

By Beverly Creamer
Advertiser Education Writer

With a week to go before the start of the new school year, the Department of Education has filled all but 199 teacher vacancies. It's one of the lowest number of vacancies the public schools have seen in recent years.

State Superintendent Patricia Hamamoto asked that teachers still interested in applying for these vacant positions apply through the central hiring office, rather than calling individual schools.


To reach a recruiting office, call:

  • On O'ahu: 586-3420

  • From the Big Island: 974-4000 Ext. 63420

  • From Maui: 984-2400 Ext. 63420

  • From Kaua'i: 274-3141 Ext. 63420

  • From Moloka'i and Lana'i: (800) 468-4644 Ext. 63420

  • From continental U.S. (including Alaska): (800) 305-5104
