Hinsdale High School District 86 seems ready to hire at least two more teachers for Hinsdale Central next school year.

In early April, Domenico Maniscalco recommended Central be staffed with the full-time equivalent of 210.8 faculty members.

This would have been basically the same number of staff members as this school year, although enrollment at Central was expected to increase by 67 students.

Twelve more students have registered since March, Maniscalco said, causing district officials to reconsider the number of staff needed for Central.

Hinsdale Central officials reportedly recommended the hiring of two more full-time equivalents this month, but Superintendent Bruce Law asked for more details about how the allocation would be used, wanting to know “how does it shake out in each department, particularly in the core subjects.”

Frank Kesman, the interim principal at Hinsdale Central, said he, Law and Maniscalco are analyzing student and course enrollment and will have a recommendation soon.
