SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Some Utah school districts are scrambling to find teachers as classes resume this week.

The Alpine District was 48 teachers short as of last week. Throw in Salt Lake, Davis and Jordan, and the number of vacancies was about 150.

Tooele School District officials traveled to six states, including Michigan, to hunt for teachers.

A study recently found that Utah will need 44,000 new teachers by 2014.
