Long-Term Substitutes

When a teacher goes on leave for ten or more days, we need another certified teacher in the classroom for that duration. A leave could be 11 or more days, and includes increased pay rates depending on the length of the leave. Your help in keeping the instruction process for our students uninterrupted is invaluable!

We are seeking appropriately certified teachers to fill these current long-term leaves:

  • English 9-12
  • English 5-9
  • Art K-12
  • Early Childhood B-3
  • Elementary 1-6
  • Physical Education 7-12
  • Spanish K-12

If you are interested in helping us fill these long-term substitute positions and meet the requirements, please contact Lisa Gardner. We look forward to working with you!
