As part of the continuing effort to address the substitute teacher shortage, and in conjunction with Act 91 of 2021, the following information is being provided as an opportunity for employment.


A school entity may request a Classroom Monitor Permit through the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s (PDE) Teacher Information Management System (TIMS). A classroom monitor may be employed to provide coverage and deliver preplanned assignments in a classroom; though, importantly, a classroom monitor may not plan lessons or create or grade student work.


An individual receiving a Classroom Monitor Permit must satisfy the following requirement(s) as outlined in Act 91:


  • Has completed at least 60 semester hours or the equivalent of courses at a regionally accredited college or university located in Pennsylvania OR have at least three (3) years’ experience as a paraprofessional in a school entity and is currently employed as a paraprofessional in a school entity; and
  • Has met the pre-employment requirements for background clearances, citizenship, and good moral character under the School Code and Child Protective Service Law; and
  • Is at least 25 years of age; and
  • Has completed training on classroom management provided by an intermediate unit (IU) and approved by PDE. 


Once the above steps have been completed and the Classroom Monitor Permit from PDE has been issued, the employee would be entitled to perform the additional classroom duties allowed for a Classroom Monitor, as well as being entitled to a higher rate of pay on days while performing the Classroom Monitor duties.  The guidelines state that the employee hired would be entitled to the school entity’s day to day substitute teacher rate, which is currently $150/day. 


If you are interested in obtaining the Classroom Monitor Permit, please contact Maria Doyle, HR Secretary, to let her know your intent so that she can monitor your progress.  You can reach her at 724-861-3027 or d[email protected]


Also, as per the guidelines, you must register to take the pre-approved/appropriate course through an intermediate unit.    


The Westmoreland Intermediate Unit has a pre-approved course available.  You may register to take this course via this site:  https://forms.gle/VyMpGohfwppqZe497 .  After completing the registration form, registrants will be provided with a link and enrollment key, along with instructions on how to access the course.  




Once you have completed the course, you would turn the Certificate showing completion in to Maria in the Human Resource Office.
