Conditional and Alternative Permit Requests – Spring 2024
The purpose of this bulletin item is to provide information on how to request a conditional or alternative permit for teachers who have been hired to start in SPRING 2024 and may not have all their necessary documentation prior to the first day of school with students.
A conditional permit allows someone to sign a contract and work as a certified staff member with a location (district) limitation and deficiencies that have not been met to issued a regular teaching certificate such as a content test. A conditional permit can also be requested for someone who has applied for a local substitute permit and has not completed the human relations training course.
A conditional or alternative permit can be requested by completing the Google Form for those with spring teaching positions at https://forms.gle/iKTmKeMHJmVyr28e9.

CORRECTION – Local Substitute Teaching Permit – Request for Additional Days Form
The Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) is aware of the continued shortage of substitute teachers in school systems this school year.
The Commissioner may authorize additional days for local substitute teaching permit holders upon request by a Nebraska school system that demonstrates a need for additional days, beyond the 90 full-time days per school year currently allowed. In order to authorize the additional days, the Department must receive a request from a Nebraska school system that demonstrates need.
To facilitate school system requests, the Department has created an online form. You or your school system staff can access that form here: Local Substitute Teaching Permit – Request for Additional Days Form.
Once a request has been submitted, it will be reviewed, and the school system will be notified of the authorization.
