What to Know

Substitute (Guest) Teaching

If being a Substitute (Guest) Teacher sounds like a great way to earn income and help children succeed, you are invited to start the process.

  • Guest teachers holding a substitute teacher permit - $85 per day
  • Guest teachers holding a valid Indiana teaching license - $95 per day
  • Essential skills guest teacher - $90 per day
  • Retired teacher - $105 per day

The minimum requirement is a high school diploma, a teaching license or a substitute teacher permit. Previous classroom experience is helpful but not required. 

Franklin Community Schools is currently hosting virtual substitute teacher orientations. To register for training, please complete the orientation registration form

Please complete the following steps before attending orientation:

  • Please submit a completed application.
  • All FCS employees must complete an expanded criminal history check. You will receive an email with the link to complete this after you have attended a substitute teacher orientation and have completed the appropriate paperwork to be offered a position. The final offer of employment will be contingent upon the background check results.   
  • Please submit a copy of your substitute teaching permit. If you do not currently hold a substitute teaching permit, you may obtain one by registering with the Indiana Department of Education online system, LVIS. A tutorial is also available to guide you through this process.

Licenses issued under these guidelines will permit a substitute teacher to work for three calendar years.

Please note FCS will not approve substitute teacher permits until an expanded criminal history check has been received.

After July 1, 2009, all applicants considered for hire must obtain a criminal history background check subject to I.C. 20-26-5-10. Applicants must complete this background check through an approved entity before receiving an offer of employment, with the cost being borne by the applicant. If selected for an interview, additional information will be provided at the interview.
