Frequently Asked Questions
Once I fill out the substitute application, how long will it take to process my paperwork so that I can accept an assignment?
Once we show a completed application, evidence that you have the appropriate hours (uploaded transcript or teaching certificate), and two of your references have replied to the reference report, we process your application.
Do I need to be fingerprinted to be a substitute and what is the cost?
State law requires that substitutes be fingerprinted in order to be in the classroom with students. If you were fingerprinted for another school district or were fingerprinted for a teaching certificate, you do not need to go through the process again. However, if you fingerprinted for an entity that was NOT for educational purposes (daycare, conceal carry, etc), you will need to go through the process. The cost is $50.
Will the district pay for the cost of my fingerprinting?
No. Being fingerprinted is part of the employment eligibility.
How do I get trained to be a substitute?
Once we start the onboarding process, you will receive a substitute handbook that will guide you through the process.
What defines a long term substitute assignment?
When a certified teacher will be out a minimum of two weeks.
When does long term substitute pay begin?
