BECOME A SUBSTITUTE TEACHER
You are eligible to become a substitute teacher if you have an Associate's Degree or higher, and complete the 3 step process listed below.
STEP 1: In an effort to increase the available substitute teacher pool here in the Sun Prairie Area School District, we have started our own DPI approved Substitute Teaching Training Program. This program meets the DPI mandated training requirement to obtain your 3 year Substitute Teacher License. You will still need an Associate’s Degree or higher, but do not have to complete a state approved Educator preparation program.
The training consists of about 8 hours of video instruction and then questions from an experienced teacher and substitute.
Classes are scheduled as needed. If you are interested, please let us know by filling out the following questionnaire: Substitute Teacher Training Sign up.
STEP 2: Upon completion of the course, you will need to apply for your three year substitute permit license through the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction website.
STEP 3: Apply through this posting on WECAN. Your application will be reviewed, and a follow up email will be sent to verify your past employment and references. Once that is complete, you will receive an email explaining your next steps in the hiring process, which will include the new hire paperwork that will need to be filled out. You will then be added to our sub pool and shown how the Absence Management software works to help you pick up sub assignments.
