I don’t think it is necessary to invite co-workers, unless they are also friends/relatives. 

I’m inviting some former co-workers.  They are the people I visit when I go home.  My fiance is only inviting one person from his office, but she and I were at Army training together.

I think you can invite as many or as few as you want, as long as there are clear dividing lines (that would be clear to those not invited). For example, you could only invite the people you hang out with outside of work. Or only the people you regularly work with. Or only the people you sit with at lunch. Etc etc.

Up to you. What have the other teachers done? One rule you can use is to only invite those who you spend time with OUTSIDE of school. My Fiance and I aren’t teachers, but we’re only inviting co-workers that we see outside of work or those who we consider mentors.

I was having the same dilemma, but I realized I can’t invite everyone in my dept or even just my team, so I’m only inviting those that I have a relationship with outside of work.

I am only inviting coworkers I spend time with outside of work.

I’m not sure there’s proper ettiquette for this. But my Fiance thought it wouldn’t be right to invite some of his co-workers and not others. I didn’t really care. But he’s the one who has to see them everyday, so we invited all of them – about 10. It’s a stretch in our budget, but he works on-call so not all of them will be able to make it.

It’s really up to you!
