    Substitute Teaching Training


    If you are not a certified teacher, you will need to register for the online course and take the online training class. The cost of the training is $39.95.  You will have access to the training once your fees have been paid.

    You must receive 80% or higher on your final STEDI assessment. This training is used as a screening tool for substitute applicants. The course typically takes about 9 hours to complete. You have the ability to start and stop the training if needed.

    Certified teachers are not required to take the STEDI online training class but will have to take the online orientation and assessment through the district.  Currently enrolled alternative teaching certification program applicants are required to take the online class.  Online Training: Substitute Teaching Training Course.
