It is reassuring to know that when a classroom teacher or staff member must be absent, there is an equally dedicated substitute implementing the instructional program. The Clear Creek Independent School District is searching for more of these dedicated instructors to meet the goal of hiring 1,500 substitutes for the 2020-2021 school year.
“Substitutes are able to continue the quality instruction and daily routines for students when a teacher is unable to be in the classroom,” said CCISD Director of Human Resources Dr. Britani Moses. “Students remain engaged and involved in learning.” A substitute possesses many talents – versatility, flexibility, and selflessness to name a few. What sets CCISD apart from other districts is the training, work structure, safety protocols in place and the commitment to treating substitutes like full-time employees. The District is also one of only two Houston-area public school districts to be named to Forbes Magazine’s 2020 list of America’s Best Employers in Texas.
“CCISD has a well-established training program for qualified candidates who do not possess formal training in instruction. We value them and invest in preparing them to be in the classroom, and hope they feel that sense of satisfaction that they are making a difference,” Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources Dr. Casey O’Pry said.
CCISD accepts applications for teacher and paraprofessional/aide substitutes throughout the school year and offers a competitive pay rate for all positions, which ranges from $70-$145 per day depending on length and certifications. The District has committed to paying long-term rates for those who sign up to sub daily at a campus.
When applying to become a substitute, the applicant must have 3 to 5 years experience, pass a background check, and provide a copy of their teaching certificate, their high school or college transcript, three references with one from a previous or current work supervisor, along with a completed application on file prior to interviewing and/or attending substitute orientation.
