 1        AN ACT concerning education.

 2        Be  it  enacted  by  the People of the State of Illinois,
 3    represented in the General Assembly:

 4        Section  5.  The  School  Code  is  amended  by  changing
 5    Section 21-9 as follows:

 6        (105 ILCS 5/21-9) (from Ch. 122, par. 21-9)
 7        Sec.  21-9.   Substitute  certificates   and   substitute
 8    teaching.
 9        (a)  A substitute teacher's certificate may be issued for
10    teaching   in   all  grades  of  the  common  schools.   Such
11    certificate may be  issued  upon  request  of  the   regional
12    superintendent of schools of any  region in which the teacher
13    is to teach.  A substitute teacher's certificate is valid for
14    teaching   in   the  public  schools  of  any  county.   Such
15    certificate may be issued to persons who either  (a)  hold  a
16    certificate    valid  for  teaching  in the common schools as
17    shown on the face of the certificate, (b) hold a bachelor  of
18    arts degree from an institution of higher learning accredited
19    by the North Central Association or other comparable regional
20    accrediting   association  or  have  been  graduated  from  a
21    recognized institution of higher learning with  a  bachelor's
22    degree,  or  (c)  have had 2 years of teaching experience and
23    meet such other rules and regulations as may  be  adopted  by
24    the  State  Board of Education in consultation with the State
25    Teacher Certification Board.  Such certificate  shall  expire
26    on June 30 in the fourth year from date of issue.  Substitute
27    teacher's  certificates  are  not  subject  to endorsement as
28    described in Section 21-1b of this Code.
29        (b)  A teacher holding a substitute teacher's certificate
30    may teach only in the place of a  certified  teacher  who  is
31    under  contract  with  the employing board and may teach only

 1    when no appropriate fully certified teacher is  available  to
 2    teach  in  a substitute capacity.  A teacher holding an early
 3    childhood certificate,  an  elementary  certificate,  a  high
 4    school   certificate,  or  a  special  certificate  may  also
 5    substitute teach in grades K-12 but only in the  place  of  a
 6    certified  teacher  who  is under contract with the employing
 7    board.  A substitute teacher may teach only for a period  not
 8    to exceed 90 paid school days or 450 paid school hours in any
 9    one  school district in any one school term. However, for the
10    2001-2002, 2002-2003, and 2003-2004 school years,  a  teacher
11    holding  an  early  childhood,  elementary,  high  school, or
12    special certificate may substitute teach for a period not  to
13    exceed  120  paid school days or 600 paid school hours in any
14    one school district  in  any  one  school  term.  Where  such
15    teaching  is partly on a daily and partly on an hourly basis,
16    a school day shall be considered as  5  hours.  The  teaching
17    limitations  imposed by this subsection upon teachers holding
18    substitute  certificates  shall  not  apply  in  any   school
19    district operating under Article 34.

22    becoming law.
