3120.04 - EMPLOYMENT OF SUBSTITUTES
The Board recognizes the need to procure the services of substitute teachers in order to continue the operation of the schools as a result of the absence of regular personnel.
The Superintendent shall employ substitute teachers as services are required to replace temporarily-absent regular staff members. Such assignment of substitute teachers may be terminated when their services are no longer required.
Substitute teachers must possess a valid Indiana substitute teacher permit obtained through the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) with a copy kept on file in the Office of the Superintendent or hold a valid Indiana professional, provisional, limited, or an equivalent license issued by the IDOE, a copy of which shall be kept on file in the Office of the Superintendent.
Substitute teachers must meet the minimum requirements established by the IDOE to obtain a substitute teacher permit are:
hold a high school diploma, and
be eighteen (18) years of age or older for grades K-6 and twenty (20) years of age or older for grade 7-12.
Substitute teachers will be paid according to the Board adopted pay schedule and any revisions thereto.
The Superintendent will recommend annually a pay schedule for substitute teachers.
An individual who holds a professional license, provisional license, limited license, or an equivalent license issued by the Indiana Department of Education and serves as an occasional substitute teacher shall be compensated on the Corporation's substitute teacher pay schedule. Provided, however, that an individual who holds a professional license or provisional license and serves as a substitute teacher in the same teaching position for more than fifteen (15) consecutive school days shall be compensated on the regular pay schedule for Corporation teachers.
A substitute teacher may be employed without a written contract.
The Superintendent may recommend that the Board approve a contract with a vendor to provide substitute teachers to work in the Corporation as long as the substitutes provided meet the provisions of this policy and AG 3120.04.
