Chagrin Falls Schools Hiring Qualified Substitute Teachers

Chagrin Falls Schools is hiring substitute teachers for the 2020-21 school year.  The District is reaching out to interested and qualified parents and community professionals who may wish to share their talents, expertise and professionalism.

“These positions offer great flexibility and an opportunity to be involved with meaningful work all within our world-class teaching environment,” said Director of Operations and Strategic Initiatives Christopher Woofter.  “Our substitute teachers report very high work satisfaction in their roles and add an important dimension to our organization.  The recently increased daily pay rate for substitute teachers is now at $105 per day.  Plus all newly hired substitute teachers will be offered paid training in education technology, Google Classroom, and e-learning video teaching applications.”

The Ohio Department of Education offers multiple pathways to becoming a substitute teacher and for securing a license.  Three main pathways are

  • Education Degrees – Applicants who have a post-secondary degree in Education may apply for an “Education Degree-Unlimited” substitute license.

  • Subject Area Degrees: Applicants who have a post-secondary degree in a specific subject area, such as Mathematics or English, for example, may apply.

  • All Other Degrees: Applicants who have a post-secondary degree in an area that is not directly related to a subject area, such as Interdisciplinary Studies, Criminal Justice, Cooucaotions, Business, Engineering, Economics, Computer Science, Marketing,  for example, may apply for the “General Substitute” license.

We have put numerous safety protocols in place in each one of our buildings and classrooms and that has been critical to providing and maintaining in-person teaching and learning since September.  These are listed in our Return to School Operational Guide found on our District website
