The Ventura County Office of Education is offering online modules that meet the 45 hours of preparation required for a current or prospective substitute teacher to obtain an initial Teaching Permit for Statutory Leave (TPSL). The modules are ongoing and may be taken at any time.
The TPSL allows an employing agency to fill a position where the teacher of record is unable to teach due to a statutory leave with a temporary teacher of record for the duration of the leave. The TPSL requires 45 hours of preparation for each of the first three issuances of the permit. Each issuance is valid for one year, and permits a TPSL holder to remain in a classroom for one calendar year.
