Your role as a Substitute Teacher

  • As a substitute teacher, you will play a vital role in the daily education of our students. Substitute teachers also have the responsibility to provide a stimulating learning environment for students. As a substitute teacher, you accept the function within the role of the regular classroom teacher, with the same professional standards, some of which include:
    • keep students on task
    • engage students in the lesson materials
    • high expectations for student achievement
    • ability and willingness to work within a variety of classroom structures
    • maintain a high level of professionalism inside the classroom and on campus while serving as an example to our students

Eligibility and Application Process

  • Substitute Teachers:

    Substitute Permit holders = $170.00 per full day

    Valid California credential = $180.00 per full day

    Retired FSUSD teachers = $204.50 per full day


    Minimum requirements:

    • 30-day substitute permit or valid California teaching credential

    * If you do not have a 30 day sub permit, you must have a Bachelor’s degree plus have passed the CBEST. Please upload these 2 things, or at least note on the application that you have them. Please note: As of Jan 1, 2017, a Certificate of Clearance is required by the CTC. You must apply through the CTC website at APPLY ONLY and pay the fee – do not fingerprint. We will take care of that here, if you are moved forward in the hiring process. Once printing goes through, the COC will be issued to you via email. We will arrange an appointment with our credential analyst to help you apply for the sub permit later, if needed. You would need to show official transcripts and proof of passing CBEST at that time.
