New substitute teacher options for the 2020-21 school year

The Iowa Department of Education has developed a new informational document to assist schools that are experiencing challenges in finding substitute teachers and paraeducators this school year. The document outlines the different options and incentives made available through governor proclamations for the 2020-21 school year to broaden the pool of potential substitutes and expand their opportunities to work. 

Please reach out to Larry Bice at the Iowa Department of Education at or Mike Cavin at the Board of Educational Examiners at if you have any questions.
