Sixteen schools in Northern Tasmania have received new teachers this year, but the region has had fewer teachers overall join its ranks than the North-West and south.
Right to Information documents released on Wednesday show to date, 78 teachers have been recruited and placed into schools under the government's initiative to employ 250 new teachers over six years.
However, the data shows of those 78 teachers, only 19 of them have been placed in Northern Tasmania.
This number has not changed since the last update on the recruitment drive, reported in August.
Northern Tasmanian schools to benefit from the recruitment drive include Port Dalrymple at George Town, Scottsdale District School and Prospect High School, who have all added two new teachers each.
Prospect High School was announced as the latest Northern Tasmanian high school to transition to a year 11 and 12 extension school. It has begun offering those subjects since the beginning of the year.

In the North-West, the focus has been on regional schools, with Mountain Heights District School placing three new teachers onto its books.
Mountain Heights had the highest number of successful recruiting across the board, with most schools recruiting one or two teachers.
Smithton District School, Latrobe High School, Reece High School in Devonport and Romaine Park Primary School in Burnie have added two teachers each to its staffing ranks.
The North-West has received an injection of 24 new teachers of the 78 who have been employed.
Southern Tasmanian schools have reaped the most benefit from the recruitment drive so far, with 35 of the 78 teachers placed in regional schools.
Bayview Secondary College, Brighton Primary School, Dover District School, Margate Primary School, Montrose Bay High School, Springfield Gardens Primary School and Taroona High School have all added two teachers each.
There has also been an increase in teachers for schools with disability support, however, none of those resources have flowed to the North.
The southern support school has recruited two new teachers, while special education North-West has added one new teacher. No new teachers have started at the Northern Support School.
The policy was put in place in 2018 by Education Minister Jeremy Rockliff to boost the number of frontline teaching staff in schools. It had a particular focus on hard-to-staff regional schools.
In order to meet the policy commitment, the Education Department would have to employ on average 41 full-time equivalent teachers each year over six years.
With 78 teachers employed in schools since the policy announcement in 2018, that averages to 39 full-time equivalent teachers in 2018 and 2019.
Mr Rockliff said at the launch last year the state government had committed to employing 197 more teachers in classrooms in the next four years, with the remainder being employed in the following two.
