In most all school districts across the Tri-State you must have at least 64 college credit hours, which comes out to be about two years of college to become a substitute teacher. Thats not the case anymore.
EVSC officials lowering the number of college credits to just 30 hours, to fill in for a full time teacher.
The district so short staffed they're trying to take advantage of college students, capitalizing on their upcoming winter break schedule.
For those who are not a college student, thats OK too, if you meet the requirements to sub the district wants to hear from you also.
The pay is between $70 to $100 a day.
"College students we know are going to be home for an extended period this year, many universities are going to be home for six weeks instead of three weeks this year. What a great time for them (college students), if they're interested in the teaching profession, or maybe they're not, we are encouraging them to sign up. We can use them before the holidays or even before they return to their college or university"says EVSC Spokesperson Jason Woebkenberg.
You will have to go through a national background check. You will also have to obtain a Indiana substitute teaching license. That license is just over $16 out of pocket for a three year license.
If you're to nervous to step inside a classroom there are virtual options available.
