Bill that would create statewide short-call substitute teacher pilot program still alive

A bill that would create a short-call substitute teacher pilot program for schools in the state was introduced in the House early in the current legislative session by State District 27B Representative Patricia Mueller, a Republican from Austin, and it was later introduced on the floor of the Senate by District 27 Senator Gene Dornink, a Republican from Hayfield.  Representative Mueller spoke with KAUS and stated that the bill still has life in the Senate…

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.
