LEXINGTON -- Community members without a bachelor's degree will be permitted to substitute teach for Lexington Local Schools starting Sept. 23.

The Lexington board of education passed a resolution Wednesday that will allow individuals 18-or-older with a high school diploma to substitute teach if they pass a background check, obtain a substitute teaching license and are approved by the district.
