5:220 Substitute Teachers

The Superintendent or designee may employ substitute teachers as necessary to replace teachers who are temporarily absent.

A substitute teacher must hold a valid teaching or substitute license and may teach in the place of a licensed teacher who is under contract with the Board.  There is no limit on the number of days that a substitute teacher may teach in the District during the school year, except as follows:

  1. A substitute teacher holding a substitute license may teach for any one licensed teacher under contract with the District only for a period of not to exceed 90 paid school days in any one school term.
  2. A teacher holding a Professional Educator License or Educator License with Stipulations may teach for any licensed teacher under contract with the District only for a period not to exceed 120 paid school days.

The School Board establishes a daily rate of pay for substitute teachers.  Substitute teachers receive only monetary compensation for time worked and no other benefits.
