Holders of the Substitute Authorization may now serve all grade levels. The new rule citation went into effect on December 17, 2014 and is as follows:

282—22.2 (272) Substitute Authorization. A Substitute Authorization allows an individual to substitute in grades PK-12 for no more than 5 consecutive days and no more than 10 days in a 30-day period in one job assignment for a regularly assigned teacher who is absent, except in the driver’s education classroom. A school district administrator may file a written request with the board for an extension of the 10-day limit in one job assignment on the basis of documented need and benefit to the instructional program.

The licensure committee will review the request and provide a written decision either approving or denying the request. An individual who holds a Paraeducator Certificate without a bachelor’s degree and completes the Substitute Authorization program is authorized to substitute only in the special education classroom in which the individual paraeducator is employed.
