• Calling for SCASD Substitute Teachers and Paras!

    We need you! Currently, our district is experiencing a severe shortage of substitute teachers and paraprofessionals. For a variety of reasons, we’re facing staffing challenges, so we are reaching out to our community for help. 

    These openings must be filled as soon as possible. If you, or someone you know, is interested, please apply now. To be a substitute teacher earning $95 per day, you must have at least a bachelor's degree. Paraprofessional positions require a high school diploma, and depending on their role, start at $11.50 per hour and go up from there. 

    In addition, we are seeking substitute bus drivers, custodians, nurses, and food services workers.  

    For all positions, we will provide the training you need. Please consider joining us for a rewarding job that will help our community’s children.
