Always thought you would enjoy teaching? Not really sure if you’re ready to fully commit? We would love to have you try us out by becoming a Substitute Teacher.
To be eligible to become a Substitute Teacher you need to have successfully completed a minimum of 60 college credit hours or have obtained a degree from an accredited institution of higher learning. Typically this accreditation is a regional or national accreditation. If you have questions regarding your school’s accreditation or qualification status you are welcome to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our substitute teachers are paid on a daily rate as follows:
Substitute Teacher with 60 college credit hours or Associate's Degree: $ 70.00 per day
Substitute Teacher with a Bachelor’s or higher degree: $ 80.00 per day
Substitute Teacher on a qualified long term assignment: $ 125.00 per day
Substitute Teachers are paid monthly, on the last working day of the month.
Working within our Substitute Teaching program allows you the flexibility to work as much or as little as your schedule allows, giving you the experience in the classroom to determine if teaching is the right profession for you. We have many Substitute Teachers who work full time hours throughout the District at their preference.
Our Substitute Teachers enjoy the ability to work with an online call-out system that accepts customization. This allows you, as a Substitute Teacher, to indicate what schools you prefer to work with and the days you are available.
The Escambia County School District requires each Substitute Teacher to work a minimum of nine days per school year to remain active in the call-out system.
Here are the three simple steps you will want to take to become a Substitute Teacher:
- Official Transcripts: To kick off the hiring process you will need to request an official transcript to be sent to the Escambia County School District. Transcripts can be mailed or hand delivered in a university sealed envelope to 75 North Pace Boulevard, Pensacola, Florida 32505. If your school participates in e-script, the online transcript service, you can have them send the e-script to email@example.com
- Fingerprinting & Background Checks: Every individual working in the public education system is fingerprinted and an extensive background check is performed. This background check is done at your own cost. To review information regarding the current cost, steps to accomplish the fingerprinting, and hiring guidelines/criteria for successfully passing the background check, please visit our New Hire webpage.
- Follow through the New Hire Steps: Also located on the New Hires webpage are the subsequent steps necessary to follow through to become a Substitute Teacher. In general, once your background has been approved, you will be given online required training regarding safety in schools, processed through our HR Department, pay for and receive your local substitute certificate through our Certification Department, undergo a Drug Free Workplace drug test, and receive your badge along with instructions on how to use the online Substitute call-out system.
