Every day counts in the education of a student. Therefore, when it is necessary for a regular classroom teacher to be absent, it is essential that the class work continues at the highest level possible.

Step 1: Complete the online application for substitutes found here: Substitute Application
Once your application is submitted our office will be in contact regarding the next steps.
After you have completed the application and our Substitute Office has been in contact, you will be sent a link to complete the following steps.
Step 2: Public School Works
You will be required to complete several required online courses through Public School Works that may take a few hours. This must be completed each school year.
Step 3: Fingerprinting
All substitutes are required to be fingerprinted by Texas state law to be allowed to work in a public school. The cost for the fingerprinting is just under $50. The district will not reimburse applicants for fingerprinting expenses. Previous fingerprinting that you may have completed for a real estate license, nursing license or day care will not be accepted by the state. If you are certified to teach in the state of Texas and have been digitally fingerprinted for certification purposes, we will be able to acquire the results quickly.
Step 4: Orientation
Both the fingerprinting and online courses must be completed PRIOR to registering to attend an orientation. We will have one orientation per month for the Fall semester.
