The District will ensure that all teachers, school and district leaders, and pupil personnel service professionals hold a valid and appropriate certificate for their assignment. The District will utilize incidental teaching when needed to meet the needs of students with course selections to the extent it is permissible. The District will employ certified substitute teachers as often as possible and, when not available, will use non-certified substitutes only for the allowable number of days given their qualifications and teaching assignment. To the degree possible, the District will work with local teacher educator preparation programs to identify appropriate ways in which students enrolled in education programs can support classroom instruction. The District currently has an approved APPR plans and has begun discussions with the relevant stakeholder groups to address revisions that may be needed under the re-opening plan or a potential move to a remote instructional model should that become necessary.
