NEW Requirements for Short-Term Substitute Permit

Thursday, July 26, 2018

The August 1st publication of revised PI 34 includes several changes to the requirements of the Short-Term Substitute Permit. The changes are indicated below:

  1. The district request will no longer be required.
  2. The substitute training must be completed before any educator may apply.
  3. The Short-Term Substitute Permit will be called a Short-Term Substitute License.

These changes are effective August 1, 2018.  There will be a new Short-Term Substitute application available that aligns to the new requirements. The new application will be available August 1st.


The required training may be provided by a school district, a Cooperative Educational Services Agency (CESA), an approved educator preparation program, and other agencies approved by the DPI.

More information about this license can be found on the Three-Year Substitute Permit page.
