Substitute Information

We are excited to announce DCSD has raised the substitute teacher rate by an average of $30 a day for both Valley & Lake schools. We will also continue offering incentive bonuses for certified and classified substitutes.

Again this year, we are facing an extreme substitute shortage, so I am reaching out to parents, grandparents, family members, and our community today. We are in desperate need of teacher substitutes, classified substitutes, and substitute bus drivers. 

Quality substitute teachers, paraprofessionals, and bus drivers are critical in our students’ day-to-day learning, and we need our parents’ help to fill these vital roles. Substitutes keep our classrooms, buses, and nutritional service running every day. 

We do not want to reach the point where we do not have enough substitutes, which could impact our children’s education, so we need your help by becoming a substitute for the Douglas County School District. By becoming a substitute, you will have the opportunity to impact your children’s education and potentially all of the children in our community.

Please apply to be a substitute for the Douglas County School District!  Flexibility is a huge perk of the job, you can work the days you want, and at the schools of your choosing.
