Greetings, USD 429 Troy Schools Families:
Thank you for your continued support of our students, staff, and school community. We are excited to share some information with you about a recently approved opportunity for our district to temporarily expand and enhance our supply of available substitute teachers.
Due to the recent and unprecedented shortage of substitute teachers available to schools across Kansas, our Kansas State Board of Education recently approved an opportunity for individuals to temporarily qualify for an emergency substitute license from now through December 31, 2022.
An individual may temporarily qualify for an emergency substitute license with the following criteria:
High school diploma
Completion of Greenbush’s Emergency Substitute Training Modules (training may be completed now prior to application)
Verification of hire from a local education agency (LEA) / school district
Application and $60 processing fee
Fingerprint background check and fee. Individuals who previously received a TEAL substitute license are not required to re-submit fingerprints
Individuals may serve no more than 15 consecutive days in the same assignment
Please know that our goals in considering and utilizing this temporary opportunity as a district will continue to prioritize student and educator safety and continuing to do everything we possibly can to not disrupt continuous student learning. We are confident that this opportunity and process will help us and benefit students, and we are excited to work with more people who are interested in serving in this role.
If you have any questions or if you are interested in knowing more about how to serve as a substitute teacher through this Emergency Substitute License opportunity, please contact Janel Anderson directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 785-985-3950.
Thank you for your time,
Superintendent of Schools
