Please note the following two categories of sub applicants and instructions for each: 


Certified Teacher Applicants:


Certified teachers will need to contact Terri Nowicki in the Human Resource Department for fingerprinting status and paperwork instructions. Contact information is listed at the bottom of this page.


If fingerprinting is required, the fee of approximately $50 will be the responsibility of the applicant. However, the process must be initiated with the HR office sending information to the State Board of Educator Certification. This must be completed prior to working as a substitute in the district.  


Non-Certified Applicants:


The minimum education requirement for subbing for WFISD is 
• A high school diploma
• Passing score on a competency test
• Attend the WFISD substitute orientation
• Complete the Regional Service Center substitute training course online or face-to-face ($25.00 fee) 
Transcripts verifying a bachelors degree or higher are required.

Non-certified applicants must complete a substitute training either on line with Region 4 or attend a substitute orientation class at Region 9 ESC scheduled for Wednesday, January 27, 2016 at 9:00 am to 12:00 noon before substituting in WFISD. You must pre-register and the cost is $25.00 payable on the day of the training for either the on line orientation with Region 4  or the class held at Region 9. For more details, for Region 9 go to www.esc9.net, create a username and password, and sign up the course. For more details, for Region 4 go to www.esc4.net.  The course is designed for anyone who will be substituting in elementary and/or secondary schools. Training includes topics on the professional and routine duties of the substitute teacher, the basics of instruction and classroom organization, and principles of classroom management. Take advantage of this innovative e-learning course to effectively support the students in your classroom. *This training is an affordable way for participants to gain or improve their substitute teaching skills. It does not guarantee a substitute position with any school district.
