Thank you for your interest in being a substitute teacher for Hamilton Southeastern Schools! 
Below are the different categories of substitute teachers:

Regular Substitutes
  • Part-time employees who sub on an as-needed basis
  • Paid $80 per day, $40 per half-day, if subbing for a teacher
  • Paid $100 per day, $50 per half-day, if subbing for a teacher, and you are:
    • Retired or former teacher, and     
    • Have 10 years of creditable service, and
    • Are vested with TRET
  • Paid $70 per day, $35 for half-day, if subbing for an instructional assistant (all regular subs, including retired or former teachers)

You must have 30 hours of credit from an accredited U.S. university or college (or the equivalent from an international institution) to be a substitute teacher with HSE Schools. To apply for a substitute teaching position, please follow these steps:

Step 1

If you are not a current HSE employee, submit and pay for a SafeHiring Solutions EXTENSIVE background check if you have not submitted one for HSE Schools since June 15, 2020.*  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 SafeHiring Solutions, you will receive two e-mails from KidTraks@dcs.in.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 as soon as possible.  If you did not receive the e-mails, please check your junk or spam e-mails.

Please click the link to begin the employment background check process: SafeHiring Solutions Background Check.

Step 2

Apply on AppliTrack! - You will find the options of Permanent Substitute Teacher and Substitute Teacher under the Position Desired tab of the application. E-mail addresses are REQUIRED on references on the application.

*If you do not submit a SafeHiring Solutions EXTENSIVE background check because you have done so for HSE Schools since June 15, 2020, please e-mail Beverly Kane at bkane@hse.k12.in.us after completing Step 2, or we will not know you have applied.

Step 3

Upon satisfactory completion of Steps 1 and 2, we will send employment forms to you electronically via email. Please complete and submit these forms back electronically.

Step 4

Upon completion of Step 3, we will invite you to a Sub Orientation Meeting at the Administration Office. Please bring to the meeting:

One of the following:
  • Unexpired passport, or
  • Unexpired driver’s license along with either Social Security card or birth certificate,
AND the items listed below:
  • Voided check or direct-deposit letter from bank, and
  • Copy of college transcripts, college degree or teacher’s license (to verify 30 hours of college credit), and
  • Copy of your current State of Indiana teacher's license or State of Indiana substitute teacher's permit
    • A current State of Indiana teacher's license or State of Indiana substitute teacher's permit is required to be a substitute teacher. If you do not have a current Indiana teacher's license or substitute teacher's permit, you can apply online for a permit with the Indiana Department of Education at https://www.doe.in.gov/licensing.   
    • If you are applying for a substitute permit, we will verify your permit with the DOE AFTER all of the above steps have been completed.  You will need to electronically send a copy of your permit to us.
After everything above has been completed, we will send you your Absence Management log-in information and an invitation to set up your Frontline account so you can start to sub for HSE Schools!
