• Substitute Teaching

    Substitute teachers are a valued asset and play an integral role in the education of our students. The substitute teachers posting will be opened on the EdJoin website.  

    How do I become a Substitute Teacher?

    • Become qualified. All substitute teachers must either possess a valid California teaching credential OR hold a bachelor's degree and have passed the California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST). 
    • Submit an online application via EdJoin.  
    • Monitor your email.  You will be contacted if selected to be a substitute teacher.


    The current daily rate of pay for substitute teaching is $140.  After the 15th consecutive day, the daily rate increases to $150 for a long-term substitute teacher with a clear credential.  


    Applicants for substitute teaching positions must submit the following:

    • A completed District Application on EdJoin
    • Copy of TB clearance (TB test or Risk Assessment)
    • Copy of CBEST Card
    • Copy of Credential or 30-Day Substitute Teaching Permit
    • One letter of character recommendation from either a district you have previously worked for or your Master's Teacher
    • Fingerprints


    ***If you have been fingerprinted at the Fresno County Office of Education, please let us know.  Otherwise, a fingerprinting appointment must be made for you at the Fresno County Superintendent of Schools Office.
