Long Title:AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 14 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO SALARIES FOR SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS.
Original Synopsis:This Act allows for juniors and seniors majoring in education at a Delaware college or university to be paid $83 per day as substitute teachers, the same rate paid to those who hold a bachelor’s degree but not a teaching license. This will encourage education students to gain some field experience, while also incentivizing a larger pool of potential substitute teachers to address a growing difficulty in finding qualified, reliable substitute teachers for our schools.
Fiscal Note/Fee Impact:Not Required
Takes effect upon being signed into law
