SB 1397 Substitute Teaching Shortage Relief

SB 1397 would authorize a holder of an emergency 30-day substitute permit or an emergency substitute teaching permit for prospective teachers to substitute teach during the school year for any one teacher, or for a holder of a career emergency substitute permit for 60 days. The bill also authorizes holders of those permits to teach as a substitute in a special education classroom for up to 40 days for any one teacher or vacancy during the school year.
