VDOE annually collects information from school divisions related to average teacher salaries as well as information about critical shortage teaching endorsement areas defined by a school vacancy which a division receives applications from three or fewer qualified candidates.

Staffing and Vacancy Report

The Staffing and Vacancy Report includes data collected via the annual Positions and Exits Collection (PEC) which began in the 2021-2022 school year. It enables the commonwealth and school divisions to comply with the reporting requirements necessary to address critical staff shortages of 140 positions including both licensed and unlicensed personnel by geographic region and measure growth and decline of required staffing levels. The collection reduces the reporting burden on school divisions by replacing several older collections including the Supply and Demand report and the Instructional Personnel Survey.

Data represent a snapshot of staffing levels and vacancy rates as of October 1 of the school year. Even though divisions continuously fill vacancies throughout the school year, the Staffing and Vacancy Report does not reflect new hires or exits after October 1 of the school year. The school-, division-, region-, and state-level data are available by position by school year.
