Substitute employment is on an on-call, as-needed basis. It is a part-time position without benefits. Substitute teachers are only required for assignments while school is in session.

Clayton County Public School District has chosen Absence Management to manage the assignments for our substitute teachers. This is an automated system that is simple to operate by using the telephone and the internet.

The minimum requirement to apply for substitute teaching is to hold a 
Bachelor's Degree from an accredited college.

To apply for substitute teaching you must complete an online substitute teacher application. You will only be able to submit the application if we have a job posted for the substitute teacher position in our employment opportunities.  

We review substitute applications periodically throughout the school year as the need arises to hire additional substitutes. If you are selected as a candidate for hire, the Human Resources Department will contact you by email.
We will ONLY contact those selected to be hired.

REMEMBER:  We have an abundance of applicants.  Most have the same qualifications.  It is impossible to hire every applicant to become a substitute.  Applications are reviewed throughout the school year.  Orientations are held several times during the school year.

If you are contacted to be hired, you will be required to supply a copy of your diploma or transcript with a degree statement to verify your highest level of education. If you are a certified teacher, a copy of your teaching certificate will be sufficient.
