The Caldwell County School District will now be utilizing temporary staffing services to help fill immediate openings throughout the school system.
At the first Board of Education meeting of the year Tuesday night Superintendent Nate Huggins suggested that the district approve a proposal from Wise Staffing Group in Paducah that would provide temporary help for unexpected and immediate openings.
He added that there is the possibility of hiring full-time help from the temporary positions.
Huggins stressed the importance of having all open positions filled within the district, especially janitorial.
Following short discussion, a motion, and a second, the Board voted four to one in favor of approving the proposal from Wise Staffing Group.
Huggins noted that the district would only pay Wise Staffing Group when temporary help is being utilized by the school system.
