3120.04 - EMPLOYMENT OF SUBSTITUTES
The School Board recognizes the need to procure the services of substitutes in order to continue the operation of the schools as a result of the absence of regular personnel.
The Superintendent shall employ substitutes as services are required to replace temporarily-absent regular staff members. Such assignment of substitutes may be terminated when their services are no longer required.
Professional substitutes must possess a valid Indiana professional certification kept on file in the Office of the Superintendent.
In order to obtain proper certification for substitute teaching, the Superintendent shall submit, on a yearly basis, to the Division of Teacher Licensing of the Indiana Professional Standards Board a certification plan consisting of the following elements:
|A.||education requirements for the substitute|
|B.||documentation of positive work experience with children|
|C.||the design for in-service training and/or pre-service preparation|
|D.||pre-employment screening process for criminal background and reference checks|
|E.||the process for assessing the effectiveness of the substitute teacher|
The Superintendent shall sign and submit each application for certification to the Division of Teacher Licensing.
This certification process will apply to all new substitute teachers.
