Substitute Teachers

IDEA substitute teachers must have completed at least 60 college hours and be able to read, write, speak and comprehend the English language.  We encourage degreed, certified teachers who are interested in teaching at IDEA to apply as both a substitute and a permanent teacher, as being a substitute provides great experience working within the IDEA system.

Substitute Teacher Daily Rate:

  • 60+ College hours = $65.00
  • Bachelor’s degree = $85.00
  • Certified* teacher = $110.00

* Must have a valid teaching certificate on the State Board Educator Education Certification online system

After submitting the application and clearing the background check, all substitute teacher candidates will be invited to attend an IDEA substitute teacher training. You will be notified by IDEA when you are cleared to attend this training.

If you have questions about the substitute teacher hiring process, please contact IDEA’s Substitute Manager:
