ARSD 24:28:01:01 (Meaning of terms)

The effect of the rule will be to update the certification rule to extend the length of time a long-term substitute can act as the teacher of record and provide additional flexibility for leave pursuant to FMLA or when the individual has a teaching certificate. The reason for adopting the proposed rule is to provide more clarity and flexibility for school districts in hiring long-term substitutes.
