(a) A person may claim exemption and may be excused from service as a juror if it is shown that the person's health, the health or proper care of the person's family, a permanent physical or mental disability, or other substantial hardship expected to last more than two years makes it necessary for the person to be excused, or if the person is a judicial officer.

(b) A person may claim exemption and shall be excused by the court from service as a juror during the school term if it is shown that the person is a teacher in a school that is designated as failing to make adequate yearly progress under P.L. 107-110. In this subsection, "teacher" means a person who serves a school district in a teaching capacity in a classroom setting and is required to be certificated in order to hold the position.
