Substitutes Wanted

WCPSS is looking for classroom parent volunteers, retirees and others with an interest in working with students to register as substitutes with our district. Potential substitutes should complete the employment application available at wcpss.net/subs. If the applicant is approved for employment as a substitute teacher, they will attend a New Substitute Teacher Orientation and can begin searching for jobs in Absence Management. Substitute teaching is a great opportunity for someone looking to set his or her own schedule and work with children.
