Application Process for Substitute Teachers

The pay for substitute teachers is $80 per day; substitute instructional assistants are paid $70 per day; permanent substitute teachers are paid $90 per day. To apply for a substitute teaching position, the following steps must be followed. FYI: Steps 1 and 2 MUST be completed before an interview can be scheduled.

Step 1

Apply on AppliTrack! - You will find the option of Substitute Teacher under the Position Desired tab of the application.  You must have a completed application on file before you are interviewed.  E-mail addresses are REQUIRED on references on the application.

Step 2

As part of the hiring process, you will require a background check if you have not paid for one with Hamilton Southeastern Schools within the past five years. If you have completed a background check for volunteering in our schools, this is not sufficient for employment. The Indiana Department of Child Services check is a part of this background check.  After you complete the information through Safe Hiring Solutions, you will receive two e-mails from kidtracks@indcs.gov within a few days.  One e-mail will contain a password to log in, and the other will contain the link to log in using that password.  It is very important that you complete this process ASAP.  If you did not receive the e-mails, please check your junk or spam e-mails.
