Under current law, the public employees' retirement association (PERA) limits the number of days that retired teachers can work as substitute teachers. The bill temporarily waives these limits for qualified service retirees in any school district or charter school while there are critical substitute teacher shortages. This temporary waiver does not count against the additional 10 service retirees that a state college or university or Denver public school division may hire. For purposes of the bill, "substitute teacher" is defined to have no restriction in the length of a continuous assignment.
