MILWAUKEE -

The state's largest school district is looking to hire 700 teachers and other school faculty.

Milwaukee Public Schools is holding a series of recruitment events for new teachers, paraprofessionals and more than a dozen principals.

According to the district, officials need to hire because of a wave of retirements sparked partly by the aging of the baby boom generation.

MPS officials said they recently boosted starting teacher salary to $41,000 from nearly $38,000 and they now give teachers for hard-to-fill positions extra time to meet residency requirements.

The events will be Feb. 13, Feb. 20, March 2 and March 20.
