HAMILTON COUNTY—More than 100 substitutes were called in to Hamilton Southeastern Schools, after school officials reported a high number of school personnel absences Friday.

District spokesperson Marianna Richards said the situation was “unusual,” but that a large number of the absences were prearranged personal days that were scheduled weeks and even months ago in advance. She said other absences were due to bereavement or sick days.

Richards reported about 140 teachers or instructional assistants were absent.  There are approximately 1,400 total for the school district.

The school district called in 115 substitutes, and additional classrooms were staffed with existing staff members.
