State Senator Turner Sponsors Teacher Shortage Law

State Senator Doris Turner is working hard to tackle teacher shortages. A new law was signed that will allow school districts to hire substitute teachers with a short-term license for longer periods of time. 


The teacher shortage has been blamed on COVID-19. The state is currently facing a teacher shortage, and the need to have qualified individuals is important. The law will raise the cap on consecutive days a short term subsitute can teach from 5 days to 15. Senator Turner says she is hopeful this law will increase the quality and stability of youth education. 



The law, SB 3907, goes into effect immediately.
