Bill creating short-call substitute teacher pilot program being considered in state legislature

State District 27B Representative Patricia Mueller, a Repbulican from Austin recently introduced a bill during the current legislative session that would create a short-call substitute teacher pilot program for schools in the state. Representative Mueller spoke with KAUS and stated that she hopes the bill will continue moving forward to give some relief to school districts around the state…

If the bill would be approved, a school district would be able to employ a person who meets the professional requirements of Minnesota statutes as a short-call substitute teacher.  A school district would have to request a background check of the individual to be considered for the position, and each assignment to replace a teacher of record would last no longer than 15 consecutive school days.  The bill is being sponsored by five different Senators, including Hayfield’s Gene Dornink in District 27.
