Pecos, TX - West Texas is no stranger to the housing shortage, but one school district is especially feeling the sting of the shortage.
Trustees for the Pecos-Barstow-Toyah ISD are discussing how to bring temporary housing into the area so they can recruit new teachers.
However, none of the housing would be ready until mid-semester.
They say they've had a hard time recruiting employees and keeping them.
School district officials were able to increase the pay for several positions.
However, they are still searching for housing options.
