After Closing of Job Posting

Candidates will get an email to participate in the FREE SubEssentials Course and Assessment. These courses are required prior to being considered for an interview. 

Please don't get scared away by this training and assessment.

Your score does NOT qualify or disqualify you for an interview. It is a tool we use to help us determine what areas additional training is needed. Those selected for an interview must complete the steps, but selection is based on a combination of documents we obtain from the applicant including application, resume, reference letters and training.

There are many questions that prospective substitute teachers ask themselves:

  • How do l know if I want to substitute teach without going into a classroom?
  • If I do decide to substitute teach, will I be any good at it?
  • What does the school district expect of substitute teachers?
  • Is this the job for me?

STEP #1 - With these questions in mind, click the following link to complete Free 90-minute SubEssentials Introductory Course. This course will introduce you to substitute teaching and not only help prepare you for the classroom, but also help prepare you for the job interview.

  • Download and read the ebook
  • View the SubEssentials Video
  • Send the completion certificate (mail, or email) 

After completing the course please email a PDF of the last page of course EBook to Dawn Alys Capito at

(Any additional training completed at this point is at the expense of the applicant)

STEP #2 - Upon completion of the SubEssentials, candidates are to complete the Assessment that checks understanding of materials in the SubEssentials Course. (The SubEssemtials Course is an introductory course to the more thorough SubSkills training offered upon job offer.)
  • This is a timed Assessment. Please put aside 20 minutes of uninterrupted time to complete.
  • This Assessment assists us in knowing what additional training you may need. The results of this Assessment alone do not determine your acceptance for an interview.
Please check your email daily. An interview will not occur unless both the SubEssentials Course and the Pre-Screening Assessment have been completed.

After Closing of Assessment Time Period

STEP #3 - Selected Candidates will be contacted via email to schedule an interview appointment.
  • All Candidates who completed the Assessment will receive an email indicating their status.
