Becoming a Substitute in TCSD #1
Teton County School District is a wonderful place to work. Surrounded by the Tetons, our community offers a wealth of opportunities to foster collaborative relationships among educators, students, parents and community members.
The work of a substitute teacher is invaluable to Teton County Schools by ensuring that classroom routines as well as day-to-day operations can continue seamlessly as if the employee was there. Substitutes also allow for the District's instructional staff to attend professional development opportunities where teacher collaboration of ideas and best teaching practices can occur. If interested in subbing for Teton County Schools, there are two employment options available.
Substitute Employment Options:
A. CERTIFIED SUBSTITUTE
To become a Wyoming Certified Substitute who fills in when certified teachers are absent, carefully review the Wyoming Professional Teaching Standards Board Website (click PTSB) to gain better understanding of the process and requirements for becoming a Wyoming certified substitute teacher. Requirements include successful completion of the U.S. and Wyoming Constitution test as well as fingerprinting.
In addition to the Wyoming PTSB Application requirements, TCSD #1 requires successful completion of paperwork, fingerprinting, and participation in a substitute induction program prior to working as a substitute in Teton County Schools.
The pay for certified substitute teachers is $80.00 for half-day and $160.00 for full-day.
B. NON-CERTIFIED SUBSTITUTE
TCSD #1 uses non-certified substitutes to fill in for classified/paraprofessional staff such as secretaries and paras when absent. Because Wyoming PTSB substitute certification is not necessary for classified/paraprofessional staff in Teton County Schools, non-certified substitutes may begin work immediately upon successful completion of TCSD #1 paperwork, fingerprinting, and substitute induction program. The pay for non-certified substitutes is $14.98 an hour.
If interested in becoming a substitute, TCSD #1 Human & Fiscal Resources Office highly recommends contacting its TCSD #1 Substitute Coordinator for guidance through the district's multi-step application process/requirements in order to become a certified or non-certified substitute for Teton County Schools, Jackson, Wyoming.
