Substitute Teaching Information and Hiring Procedures
Substitute applications will be accepted mid-July 2014 through October 31, 2014 the fall semester.
Substitute applications will be accepted again December 1, 2014 through February 28, 2015 for the spring semester.
If you are not selected for the fall semester, and are still interested in substituting with Carroll County Public Schools, you must reapply for the spring semester in December 2014 through February 2015, as only those applicants will be considered for hire for the spring semester.
All newly hired Substitutes must have a minimum of 30 college credits, verified by official transcripts.
All qualified, interested parties must complete an online application, which can be found through the following link: Substitute Teacher Application only when we are hiring substitutes. If you do not see the application, we are not hiring at this time.
Candidates will be selected from the pool of applicants and receive an email notifying them of their selection as a Substitute and advising him/her of the Substitute Orientation date, time, and location. Submitting an application does not guarantee selection as we receive many more applications than we have available positions. Please do not call for Orientation dates. That information will be supplied to selected candidates only.
Orientation sessions are required for the automated Substitute Teacher calling system; SubFinder, and mandated procedures and protocol for dealing with:
- Prevention of Sexual Harassment
-Child Abuse/Neglect reporting
-Preventing Bloodborne Pathogens
During the training, candidates must supply an official transcript showing a minimum of thirty (30) college credit hours and two forms of identification to satisfy the I-9 government form. Please do not submit transcripts or any other information prior to the Orientation. There will be an opportunity to secure a time for fingerprinting at a later date. The fee for fingerprinting will be $20 (cash or check only) due at the time prints are taken.
