Teacher shortages. Allows the governing body of a school corporation or an accredited nonpublic school to hire an individual who is in the process of obtaining a teacher's license under the transition to teaching program, if the individual: (1) is obtaining a license in a subject area; or (2) will be teaching in a school that is located in a school corporation; in which there is an insufficient supply of licensed teachers, as designated by the state board of education. Requires the superintendent of a school corporation to make a determination that either no fully licensed and highly qualified teacher is available or that the transition to teaching program participant is the best qualified for the position before hiring the program participant. Provides that a program participant who is hired to teach receives a transition to teaching permit, and enters into a regular or temporary teacher's contract. Requires the state board to review the designation of a subject area or school corporation as having an insufficient supply of licensed teachers every two years.
