WILLMAR — The Willmar School District plans to turn to the local business community for help in easing a shortage in substitute teachers.

Businesses could help by finding ways to make their employees available to be substitute teachers occasionally. Any person with a four-year degree may apply for a license as a short-term substitute teacher.
