Substitutes - Certified and Classified

Substitute employees are a valued resource for the Canon City School District.  We have two types of substitutes:  Certified (Teachers) and Classified.  Classified Substitutes include Paraprofessionals, Bus Drivers, Food Servers, Custodians, Secretaries, and all other support staff.

CERTIFIED SUBSTITUTES AND AUTHORIZATIONS:  Certified Substitutes (Teacher Substitutes) must obtain their authorization from Colorado Department of Education.  They offer 1 year, 3 year, and 5 year authorizations.  Once you are hired by the district as a Certified Substitute, you must present a copy of your authorization to the Human Resources Department. 

You will complete your authorization on the CDE website with their online system.  Certified substitutes cannot be placed in a classroom until they have received their physical authorization in the mail from CDE and provided a copy to the Human Resources Department.

HIRING:  Substitutes are required to apply via our online application system.  Documents may need to be attached, i.e. Colorado Substitute Authorization, College Transcripts, etc.

Once an application is received, it is reviewed and an interview is scheduled with Mrs. Misty Manchester, Director of Human Resources. A candidate is then sent to the next board meeting for approval and once payroll paperwork has been completed, the name is added to the substitute roster.

It is required for all substitutes to read and comply with the rules in the Substitute Handbook and submit the signed Acknowledgement Page.  This needs to be turned in to the HR Clerk and it is placed in your file. 

Each year, substitutes are contacted and are required to inform the district in writing that they are returning that fall.

RESIGNING:  If a substitute is unable to fulfill this capacity and needs to resign, this must be done in writing and addressed to Misty Manchester, Director of Human Resources.
