Temporarily employed teachers.  Prohibits a school board from hiring temporarily employed teachers (substitutes) in the core subjects of English, mathematics, science, and history and social studies at the middle and high school levels in a manner that results in the staffing of these core disciplines by a majority of substitutes or unlicensed teachers. The bill further provides that substitutes shall not be employed for consecutive or alternating teaching assignments that result in more than 90 teaching days in the same middle or secondary school class or public school in these core subjects during a school year.
