(Tulsa-AP) -- Union Public Schools will use teachers as interns instead of hiring assistant principals in some schools this school year.

The move is expected to save the district up to $80,000 and give teachers administrative experience.

Four teachers will fill assistant principal jobs at three elementary schools and Union High School.

Union Superintendent Cathy Burden says it gives teachers who may want to move into an adminstrative job a chance to try it out and help the district.

The teachers must have their master's degree in education and a certificate of administration from the state.
