Substitutes are essential in education!

Updates & Announcements

  • We need your help!

    Our teachers, classified staff, and administrators work diligently to provide a safe, stable, learning environment for all of our students.

    A significant concern for us right now is a substitute teacher shortage. We are taking every step to ensure there’s a qualified adult in the classroom when teachers are absent, including using other staff (principals, district administrators, and qualified classified staff) who have other essential responsibilities during the typical school day, when we do not have enough teachers. 

    We are looking for interested individuals who have a Bachelor’s Degree to partner with us and help out our students and staff. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a substitute teacher, please see the Guest Teachers page on our website and scroll down to the emergency substitute teacher section for details.

    Please contact our HR Recruitment Specialist at 360-473-1026 or 360-473-1024 if you are ready to move forward with the application process.

    Thank you for considering this opportunity and/or sharing it with friends and colleagues. We are a supportive community, and we appreciate your consideration in applying and helping spread the word.
