The Albemarle Schools have signed contracts with 115 new teachers this school year. More teachers are expected to be hired in the days ahead. Assistant Superintendent Matt Haas says enrollment was higher than expected at some schools. Haas says the county sent out 70 reduction-in-force letters last spring, but 24 who got those letters have been recalled. Haas says 9% of this year’s new teachers graduated from the county school system.
