How did the administration feel about you when you worked there?
Were you treated as someone who was irreplaceable and the school
couldn't function without you? Were you given stellar performance
reviews? Or not so much?
I think you would have the most insight into this yourself. If they
call you for an interview, you know they see you as someone
qualified for the position...but others might interview who they
might feel meet the qualifications better. You say they have had
problems retaining a teacher for the position, but you are also one
of the teachers who left the position, so they may have worries you
may not be completely committed to staying in the position, also.
If you don't get a call for an interview, or you interview and
another candidate gets the job, you know that they are taking
a "pass" on you this time.
So the answers to your question will be answered once the position
is filled, either by you or someone else. It won't take long to
fill the position, so you'll soon have your answer.
