Substitute Teacher Information

Thank you for your interest in being a substitute teacher for Hamilton Southeastern Schools!  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. 

Step 1

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

Step 2

If you have not completed a background check with Hamilton Southeastern Schools within the past five years, you will need to submit and pay for a full background check.  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 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 ASAP.  If you did not receive the e-mails, please check your junk or spam e-mails.
