Educator Certification

*** Attention Local Substitute Teachers ***

Thank you for your interest in being a local substitute teacher.  Before you apply for a local substitute teaching permit, you will want to take the following steps:

  1. Register for The Educator Application and Certification Hub (TEACH)
  2. Contact the school system where you want to be a substitute teacher to ensure you meet the local requirements
  3. Only complete the application for a local substitute teaching permit in TEACH after you’ve spoken to the local school system

If you already hold a local substitute teaching permit and want to substitute teach at an additional school system, please do not complete a new application. You will want to contact the school system where you intend to substitute teach to ensure you meet the local requirements.  An additional application may not be needed.
