Substitute Teachers at the Elementary School Level will be considered for work at Halls Elementary, Ripley Primary and Ripley Elementary Schools in the district. Substitute teachers are extremely important to the district's success in our student's continued education.

All candidates must submit an online application, provide proof of highest level of education, two (2) Professional references with email address, complete a TBI/FBI Fingerprint background check (see instructions below) before consideration can be given for this position. There is a one time (non-refundable) fee of $38 for the TBI/FBI Fingerprint Background check. Once the results of the fingerprint background check are received by the Human Resource Department, an email will be sent to the applicant to schedule an appointment to begin the hiring process. At the end of the school year, all active substitutes are required to submit an "Intent to Return" form to remain on the substitute list for the upcoming school year. This form must be received in the Human Resources Office by July 1. Failure to submit the "Intent to Return" will result in removal from the active substitute list and will require you to complete the process again.
