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. Start by reviewing the information below then take the next step! As part of the Governor’s Proclamation of Disaster Emergency signed July 17, 2020, a substitute authorization may be issued by the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners to an individual who:

  • Has successfully completed all requirements of the approved course, “Substitute Authorization: Fostering Student Learning as a Substitute.” 
  • Has at least one of the following: 1) an associate’s degree or bachelor’s degree or 60 semester hours of credit from a regionally accredited institution OR 2) completed an approved paraeducator certification program and holds a paraeducator certificate
