Arizona Board of Education relaxes rules for substitute teachers due to teacher shortage

  • Substitute teachers can now teach up to 120 days per school year.
  • Were previously limited to 120 days in the same district so now they can go to other districts.
  • In Arizona anyone with a high school diploma can be a substitute teacher but only for a one year period before they have to go through additional certification. The rule changes now allow up to two years.
  • Regular sub needs a bachelors degree and the certification is good for six years.
  • One recent study indicates 1 in 5 teacher positions are open in Arizona.
