14 DE Admin. Code 733
A. Type of Regulatory Action Required
Amendment to Existing Regulation
B. Synopsis of Subject Matter of the Regulation
The Secretary of Education intends to amend 14 DE Admin. Code 733 Payment of Substitutes for Teachers. The Department of Education reviewed this and other regulations which were four years or older as part of the 2016 Regulation Review as required by 29 Del.C. §10407. Public comment was received for this regulation in which the Department of Education was asked to include language that prohibits school districts from requiring teachers to pay for substitutes out of their own money. The Department does not possess the authority to make the requested change. The Department reviewed this regulation beyond the comments received and made changes for purposes of clarification. The regulation is being reviewed pursuant to the required five year review cycle.
1.1 State substitute teacher funds may be used to pay substitutes for State funded teachers when the state State funded teachers are unavailable for duty under the provisions of 14 Del.C. §1318, 29 Del.C. §5524 and 29 Del.C. §5933 (for sick leave calculations for teachers qualifying for workers’ compensation).
1.2 Substitutes for state State funded teachers may also be paid from State substitute teacher funds for:
1.2.32 Teachers participating in Department of Education initiated committee work led professional learning and project assignments.
1.3 Substitutes for State funded teachers who are absent without pay may be charged to the Division I teacher salary line State funds.
1.7 Substitutes shall be paid from State substitute teacher funds the amounts authorized for the various classes of substitutes as provided for in 14 Del.C. §1326. School districts paying more for teacher substitutes than prescribed in 14 Del.C. §1326 shall do so from local or federal funds. Federal funds may be used only if the federal program permits that use.
