Paraeducators as Substitute Teachers-Update February 15, 2022
A substitute authorization allows an individual to substitute in grades PK-12. The Board of Educational Examiners has established an emergency rule to allow paraeducators employed in an Iowa public school district or non-public school who hold a paraeducator certificate with a substitute authorization as an area of concentration to be allowed to substitute outside their assigned special education classroom IF permission is granted. This permission is not intended for long-term subbing.
