Thank you for your interest in substitute teaching in Western Placer Unified School District. We rely on our substitute teachers and greatly appreciate the support you provide to our district. The basic requirements for being a substitute teacher are to have:
- A Bachelor's Degree
- A California Teaching Credential or an Emergency 30-Day Substitute Permit
- Passed the Basic Skills Requirement
- *NEW* The Basic Skills Requirement has been suspended from January 2023 through July 2024, and is not required to get a 30 Day Substitute Teaching Permit
- (For those that do not hold a California Teaching Credential or an Emergency 30-Day Substitute Permit, Placer County Office of Education can assist individuals in applying for the permit.)
After completing an application through EdJoin (linked below), the Director of Personnel Services will review the application and recommend the candidate to the Placer County Office of Education (PCOE) Consortium. The candidate will need to get fingerprint clearance through the CTC. Once PCOE adds the prospective candidate to the consortium, the candidate must notify WPUSD of their clearance. If the candidate is already a member of the consortium, they will receive an employment packet for completion. Once processed, the substitute teacher will receive login credentials for Frontline Absence Management (information below).
