County schools seek substitutes

Thursday, Aug. 20, 2015 — With the beginning of the school year comes the push to get more substitute teachers for the county.  
    In an attempt to make it easier to obtain substitutes, the Susanville School District Board of Trustees approved a California Basic Educational Skill Test blanket waiver during it’s Wednesday, Aug. 12 meeting.
    According to the district’s superintendent, Jason Waddell, the waiver makes it allowable for potential substitutes to only have to have a bachelor’s degree and have to visit the Lassen County Office of Education to get approved for a substitute credential, which would be given on a case-by-case basis.
