MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -  It is the first day of classes in the Marana Unified School District, but not all students will be placed with their permanent teacher for school today. 

There are more than 12,000 students enrolled with MUSD, and there are vacancies for five teachers in the district. Right now the district is looking for one first grade, one fourth grade and three Special Education teachers.  

According to Tamara Crawley, spokeswoman for MUSD officials did not anticipate the shortage.  If more students enroll today there is a possibility the district will need more than those five teachers.  According to Crawley the number of teaching positions is based off enrollment.  More students means more teacher to cover them.  

Happening later this morning at Butterfield Elementary School, the MUSD Superintendent will be riding the bus to school with his students.
