The Substitute Teacher Registry is a centralized service that enables districts to obtain substitute teachers and other staff to fill short- and long-term openings. The service includes recruiting, reference checking, and training. We currently place substitute teachers, teaching assistants, teacher aides, and nurses in 27 area school districts, including BOCES, on a per diem basis. An ideal substitute is self-motivated, outgoing, enjoys working with children, patient, adaptable, and eager to acquire new skills.
School Districts served by the Substitute Teacher Registry are Argyle CSD, Ballston Spa CSD, Bolton CSD, Cambridge CSD, Cornith CSD, Fort Ann CSD, Fort Edward UFSD, Galway CSD, Glens Falls City, Glens Falls Common, Granville CSD, Greenwich CSD, Hadley CSD, Hartford CSD, Hudson Falls CSD, Lake George CSD, Mechanicville CSD, North Warren CSD, Queensbury UFSD, Salem CSD, Saratoga Springs City, Schuylerville CSD, South Glens Falls CSD, Stillwater CSD, Warrensburg CSD, Whitehall CSD, and WSWHE BOCES.
For candidates seeking non-instructional substitute positions (Food Service, Transportation, Clerical, Monitor, Teaching Assistant, and Teacher Aides) within either of these two districts, Saratoga Springs City and South Glens Falls CSD, please contact the district directly for their process.
