Substitute Information

The standards are high for teachers in our district, so we are constantly involved in the pursuit of excellence in our educational programs. Each year a significant number of substitute teachers are hired into regular teaching positions. Adhering to the same high standards as regular teachers, our substitute teachers are considered an important part of the educational program. They contribute much to the children of this community.

We employ an average of 303 substitutes a day, with a high of approximately 450 on a very busy day. (We employ approximately 3600 contract teachers.) An automated calling system, SmartFindExpress (SFE) is used to request substitutes and to fill absences.
