INDIANAPOLIS – A new Indiana law allows K-12 schools to hire full- or part-time adjunct teachers.
House Enrolled Act 1251 allows school districts to grant adjunct teaching permits to prospective instructors.
The law requires adjunct teachers to have at least four years of experience in the subject they want to teach.
They must also be mentored by another teacher.
According to the Indiana Department of Education, more than 2,200 teacher positions are open statewide as of Tuesday.
School officials across Indiana say a dwindling number of candidates are applying to open jobs.
The law goes into effect July 1. It does not allow adjunct teachers for special education.
