Ursuline College Educational Administration Licensure Opportunity



Keep remote teaching/learning skills sharp for staff faced with providing students access to teaching. 
District Tech Training and Tech Equipment Set Up continue to be available at Access to Teaching.  


Substitute Teacher Flexibility in Licensure with the Passing of Ohio SB1
The recent passing of SB1 allows The Ohio Department of Education to issue a one time, non renewable Temporary Non-Bachelor's Substitute teaching License for the 2021-22 school year. This allows districts greater flexibility to increase their pool of general daily substitutes.  Perry Local Schools has begun interviewing such candidates to add to our daily substitute list.  See more details regarding this legislation HERE.  WELCOME and SUPPORT our new faces to teaching this month as some are entering classrooms while on winter break from college.
