Summary as passed House: (all summaries)
Temporarily employed teachers. Revises the definition of "temporarily employed teacher" and eliminates the 90-day limitation on the period of time that those individuals hired as long-term substitutes to fill a teacher vacancy may serve. The bill authorizes school boards to determine the time period necessary to employ a teacher to fill a vacancy for the purpose of addressing a shortage of qualified teachers in a specific grade level or content area. The Board of Education's regulations must require that long-term substitutes hold a baccalaureate degree or demonstrate relevant work experience. Current law requires that all temporarily employed teachers (regardless of time served) be at least eighteen years of age and hold a high school diploma or a general educational development (GED) certificate. The measure expires on July 1, 2005.
