Substitute Teacher

Becoming a substitute teacher could be one of the most rewarding decisions of your life! It's a great way to make a positive difference for children and youth while supporting your community school. 

 

Substitute Authorization Requirements

substitute authorization may be issued by the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners to an individual who:

  • Has successfully completed all of the requirements of the approved course "Substitute Authorization: Fostering Student Learning as a Substitute," including two hours of classroom observation after completion of the face-to-face class (form provided at the class)
  • Has at least one of the following: 1) a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution OR 2) completed an approved paraeducator certification program and holds a paraeducator certificate
  • Has attained a minimum age of 21 years
  • Has successfully completed an Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation background check
  • Has successfully completed a national criminal history background check

 

If you hold a bachelor's degree: Receiving a substitute authorization will allow an individual who holds a bachelor's degree to substitute in grades PK-12 for no more than five consecutive days and no more than 10 days in a 30-day period in one job assignment for a regularly assigned teacher who is absent, except in the driver’s education classroom. A school district administrator may file a written request with the board for an extension of the 10-day limit in one job assignment on the basis of documented need and benefit to the instructional program. The licensure committee will review the request and provide a written decision either approving or denying the request.

If you hold a paraeducator certificate: Receiving a substitute authorization will authorize an individual who holds a paraeducator certificate without a bachelor’s degree to substitute ONLY in the special education classroom in which the individual paraeducator is employed for no more than five consecutive days and no more than 10 days in a 30-day period.
