Tutor and Substitute Teacher Trainings


Tutors work with W-FL BOCES K-12 students when students are not able to attend regular classes or for remedial purposes. Applicants wishing to support a student in a one on one setting must have a two year college degree. 

Twenty one of the twenty five component school districts within the Wayne Finger Lakes region also belong to the Tutoring Service. Applicants may select which districts, subject and/or grade level they are able to provide instructional support for in the role of tutor

Substitute Teachers

Substitute teachers are needed throughout Ontario, Wayne, Seneca, Yates counties as well as in our W-FL BOCES sites. As a substitute, you may select the districts you would like to work in and the grade level or content area you would prefer. 

W-FL BOCES offers a two-day ten hour training course designed to help current or future substitutes gain knowledge, skills and resources for working with students within our area schools. This course covers information on both substituting in-district and tutoring of students. This training includes school expectations, classroom procedures, behavior management, lesson planning, and much more. Information on applications and fingerprinting requirements is also covered. 

Qualifications for school substitutes varies across the region from a high school diploma to college credit and/or a degree or certification (see specific school districts’ websites to verify qualifications). Substitutes are hired directly by the school district, therefore the qualifications and the application process for each district must be followed.
