The Illinois State Board of Education is mounting a new effort to address the statewide teacher shortage with a license option. It’s called the “Short-Term Substitute Teacher’s License,” and it’s available right here in Kane County.
The Kane County Regional Office of Education is holding an in-person course on how to obtain your short-term license.
This program is offered to those who hold an associate’s degree or have 60 semester hours completed. This license will be valid until June 30, 2023 but may not be renewed.
You can find the Kane County ROE’s flyer below providing more information on the course or click here to be directed to the registry page.
In addition to subbing at the Kane County public schools, the Kane County Juvenile Justice Center is also is need for substitute teachers! The function of the Juvenile Justice Center is to provide safe, humane and secure temporary custody for juveniles pending court proceedings, or those who have been adjudicated on delinquent charges.
The event will be held at the Kane County Regional Office of Education from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, Nov. 19. Lunch will be provided for all those who attend!
