Following the recent passage of House Bill 583, the Ohio Department of Education will be issuing nonrenewable temporary substitute teaching licenses for the 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 school years. The 1 Year Temporary Non-Bachelor's Substitute Teaching License allows applicants who do not hold a post-secondary degree, but meet the employing school or district’s set of educational requirements, to serve in the role of a substitute teacher.? 

The legislation does not allow the Department to issue this credential until Sept. 23. However, under Ohio Revised Code sections 3319.36??and 3319.101, schools and districts may conditionally employ an individual with a pending application for a substitute teaching license for up to 60 days from the date of application.?
