Substitute Teachers

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

W-FL BOCES offers a two-day ten hour course designed to help participants gain knowledge, skills and resources for working with students.

This course covers information on both substituting in-district and tutoring of students. Training includes school expectations, classroom procedures, behavior management, lesson planning, and more.  Application and fingerprinting requirements are also covered. 

Qualifications for substitutes varies across the region from a high school diploma to college credit and/or a degree or certification.  Substitutes are hired directly by the school district.  Qualifications and the application process for the district are followed.  See school districts’ websites to verify qualifications.
