Want to Make a Difference in the Lives of Children?

We are Looking for Substitute Teachers

Requirements:

  • Must be at least 21 years of age

  • Provide proof of high school diploma or equivalency (GED)

• Contact a DeSoto Parish School to inquire if that school is currently adding to the sub list. If yes, set up an appointment to interview/complete paperwork with the principal regarding becoming a substitute teacher. If no, please contact another school.

• The school will need to copy your Social Security card, driver’s license and proof of high school completion at the interview. If you have a Bachelor Degree or higher, you will need to provide an official college transcript to the school to receive the higher pay rate (see above rates).

• Please contact Nancy Ruston (872-2836, ext. 5) or Vicki McWhorter (872-2836, ext. 0) as soon as possible after the principal interview, to set up an appointment to complete a background check. Bring the entire paperwork packet from the principal and a $50 money order made payable to DeSoto Parish School Board when you come for the background check appointment at the School Board office, 201 Crosby Street in Mansfield.

• In order to be paid degreed sub pay (Bachelor Degree or higher) you must submit an official transcript; in order to be paid certified sub pay you must submit a valid copy of your current Louisiana teacher’s certificate to the Human Resource Department at the School Board office. Degreed/certified sub pay is not retroactive and will begin on the date the official transcript or certificate is received in the HR Department. If you sub before documentation is received by the HR Department, you will be paid at the rate of a non-degreed sub.

• In addition to the steps listed above, all substitute teacher applicants are required to complete a training session at the school before being placed on the eligible sub list. The school will give your notification of the date/time.

• Thank you for making a difference in the lives of children.
