We have had a several times in the last month where teachers on sick leave have had no substitute. Policy 5610 states:
"If the Superintendent reasonably anticipates that the list of qualified, willing substitutes will be exhausted, emergency substitute certification may be sought from the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction for persons not fully qualified for a teaching or substitute certificate. Substitutes holding emergency certification may only be assigned work when the list of fully-qualified substitutes is exhausted."
This will serve as notification to the board that I have opened our substitute pool to "Emergency Certified" substitutes.
