PDU Rule RESCINDED
In the Spring of 2015, school districts and educational service districts brought information to the TSPC Commission pointing to a severe substitute teacher shortage in most areas of Oregon. In response to the potential crisis, the Commission decided to rescind the PDU requirement for substitutes, with the provision to revisit the issue in Spring of 2017. Effective July 1, 2015, substitutes are no longer required to submit verification of PDUs earned to renew.”
Applicants who are interested in becoming a classified substitute (e.g. in the classroom assisting the teacher, in an office setting, or as part of our building and grounds department) must complete the online application. Click here to be taken to the district open jobs page.
