Supply and Demand
The Illinois State Board of Education is required to report on or before January 1 to the Governor, the General Assembly and institutions of higher education on the relative supply and demand for education staff of the public schools. In 2009, the requirement for reporting was changed from “each year” to “every three years.”
As required, this report provides the following information:
- The relative supply and demand for teachers, administrators and other certificated, and non-certificated personnel by field, content area and levels:
- State and regional analyses of fields, content areas and levels with an over/under supply of educators; and
- Projections of likely high/low demand for educators in a manner sufficient to advise the public, individuals and institutions regarding career opportunities in education.
