In 1998, the Education Professional Standards Board established the Emergency Non-Certified School Personnel Pilot Program in response to the growing difficulties experienced by school districts in recruiting and retaining qualified substitute teachers. Participation in the program for the 1998-99 school year was limited to five school districts, participation was expanded for the 1999-2000 school year to twelve districts. In 2000, the EPSB amended 704 KAR 20:210 to open the program to any school district in Kentucky. The Emergency Non-Certified School Personnel Program allows participating school districts to use persons with a high school diploma, or its equivalent, when all other qualified substitutes are unavailable.
In 2002, the EPSB amended 704 KAR 20:210 to 16 KAR 2:030 creating a rolling application process throughout the school year and allowing some personnel to be utilized district wide.
