Substitutes are an essential part of our district team and key to the success of our students. Substituting offers a flexibility to choose where and when you'd like to work, and the ability to experience working throughout the district in a variety of positions. Even if you desire a permanent assignment, we strongly encourage you to consider becoming a substitute as well. Many substitute employees are hired for permanent positions as school staff, principals, and supervisors get to know them and their skills on a first-hand basis.
How to Apply
If you are interested in becoming a Certificated Substitute (WA State Teaching Certificate or Emergency Substitute Certificate required) or a Classified Substitute (office personnel, paraeducators, food services, etc.), please submit a completed application. Selected candidates will be contacted by the Substitute Coordinator to notify them of the next steps.
