During the 2018 Legislative session, the legislature passed ACT 634 which requires the Department to issue teaching authorizations to substitute teachers in public schools, as well as to substitute teachers, teachers, and administrators in public charter schools and nonpublic schools who do not hold valid certificates. The Department is required to issue these authorizations provided the teacher or substitute teacher has not facilitated cheating, has not submitted fraudulent documentation to the Department, and has not been convicted of a felony or pled nolo contendere to a felony offense*.
