Legislation aims to expedite substitute teacher hiring

State regulations are preventing schools in Door and Kewaunee counties, and others state-wide, from having enough qualified substitute teachers.  It's become harder for school districts to attract substitute instructors because of better paying jobs in other fields.  Southern Door School District Superintendent Patricia Vickman says districts are also hampered by rules that set a time limit before retired teachers can work on a part-time basis.


Legislation is being considered to reduce the time that retired teachers must wait before becoming substitutes.  According to the Wisconsin Education Association the biggest need for substitute teachers is in areas such as special education, library services and foreign language interpreters.
