A person interested in applying for the position of substitute teacher must hold a degree from an accredited college or university or have a minimum of 60 semester hours of college credit.


    Please complete the online Substitute application and submit.  Our Human Resources office will contact you with guidelines for an extensive background check and additional paperwork.  You will not be allowed to begin substituting with Rockbridge County Public Schools until the background checks are completed.  This can take approximately six to eight weeks.  Once the Human Resources office receives your cleared background check you will then be added to our Personnel listing for the next available School Board meeting.  Once approved, you will be mailed guidelines for the SmartFind Express Substitute Management System, our on-line substitute system.


    Substitute teachers are paid one hundred ($100) per day.


    Substitute teachers who hold a valid teacher license are eligible to serve as long-term substitutes.  Should the assignment be considered a long term position (defined as more than twenty (20) consecutive days in the same assignment) the teacher would be paid one hundred and twenty-five dollars ($125.00) per day beginning on the twenty-first (21) day of the same assignment.
