Our subs are certified

AS SUBS... Missouri has a substitute teacher certificate that must be on file with the school. It doesn't claim the sub is a certified teacher, only a certified sub.

The person has to apply through the state, submit fingerprints and get a background check.

The person also needs at least 60 credit hours of college--it does not need to be in education or amount to an Associate's Degree.

I like it because of the fingerprinting and background check. A person with another degree, for example, (without an education cert.) could have a criminal background we are not aware of. If parents or volunteers need a background check to be on campus or around students, why wouldn't we hold subs to at least that?

I think there is a clause that says persons with a current, active teaching certification do not need to have a sub cert to sub. (Not positive on that part.)
