By Tom Lappas, Citizen Editor Henrico Schools
Eastern and Northern Henrico middle and high schools failed to fill substitute teacher positions more than once a day on average during the past two school years, according to data provided to the Henrico Citizen by Henrico County Public Schools at the newspaper's request.
