Policy 6220


The District may need to utilize temporary appointments. The terms of these appointments will be defined by the Board on a case-by-case basis.

Student Teachers 

The District will collaborate with teacher training institutions in the placement of student teachers to provide beginning teachers with the best possible student teaching experience. 

Schools are required to allow student teachers to videotape themselves providing instruction in a classroom to meet part of their performance assessment requirements for teaching certification. The video must remain confidential, is a confidential record of the New York State Education Department (NYSED), and is not subject to viewing or disclosure to an individual or entity other than the student teacher applicant and relevant NYSED personnel.

Substitute Teachers 

A substitute teacher is employed in the place of a regularly appointed teacher who is absent, but is expected to return. The Superintendent will employ appropriately qualified substitute teachers. It is recognized that fully certified persons will not always be available for employment as substitute teachers. The District will employ substitute teachers in accordance with law and regulation. 
The list of substitute teachers is appointed by the Board of Education upon the recommendation of the Superintendent.

The Board will annually establish the rate for per diem substitute teachers.
