Tiny Homes Used to Recruit and Retain Vail Teachers

A look at Vail School District's novel approach.

Many Arizona public school teachers will get a bump in pay this upcoming school year after the state provided enough funding for a 9 percent raise. For some educators earning less than their community's median household income, finding affordable housing can be difficult. The Vail School District heard this from staff and is moving forward with plans to create a community of tiny homes that staff can either rent or purchase.
