Local politicians are responding to a report by CNHI Oklahoma Bureau Chief Janelle Stecklein that Gov. Kevin Stitt is devising an “outside the box” plan to urge state employees to substitute teach in elementary and secondary school classrooms for no additional pay.

OKLAHOMA CITY – As school districts around the state continue struggling to fill teaching positions, Sen. Jessica Garvin, R-Duncan, has filed legislation to help adjunct and highly-qualified substitute teachers fill the void. Senate Bill 1119 would remove the 270-hour limitation adjunct teachers may teach per semester in a classroom. SB 1144 would allow substitute teachers with a valid, lapsed, or expired certificate or a bachelor’s degree to work as many days as needed.
