SECTION 24Employment and compensation of instructional personnel during specific emergencies.
1012.24 Employment and compensation of instructional personnel during specific emergencies.—In the event of an epidemic, strike, mass walkout, substantial numbers of teacher resignations, or other urgent condition, a district school board upon recommendation of the district school superintendent may find and declare that an emergency exists because there is not a sufficient number of certified teachers to continue the normal operation of the schools within the district. In said event the district school board may upon recommendation of the district school superintendent employ, contract with, and compensate for instructional services rendered any person who shall be deemed qualified by regulations of the district school board. In such event, a state certificate to teach shall not be required for such employment, contract, or compensation.
