New Applicant, Past Substitute, or Hourly Teacher

  • STEP 1

     
    Obtain a substitute or teacher license issued by the Nevada State Department of Education. Go to http://www.doe.nv.gov/Educator_Licensure.
     
     
    You will need a minimum of 60 credits, or an associates (or higher) degree earned. For all questions regarding licensure, please contact the Nevada State Department of Education at 775-687-5980 or email them at license@doe.nv.gov.
      

    STEP 2

     
    Complete a Washoe County School District "certified” application*. Click here to create an online account. 
     
    PLEASE NOTE:  Once your application is complete, you must attach it to the Substitute Teacher job posting and follow the instructions shown.
     
    All district positions require 4 returned confidential references, one of which must be your current or previous direct supervisor.  Whenever possible, provide email addresses for your references in the application so they can be sent electronically.  Notify your references that you will be using them as a part of the WCSD application process and encourage them to respond as soon as possible. 
     
    *Your references cannot be older than 18 months. If they are, you need to submit new ones.
     

    STEP 3

     
    Attend an orientation.
     
    Once you have received your substitute teaching or teaching license, your application is complete (4 references are marked “returned” on your online application), and you have applied to the Substitute Teacher position, please email us at suboffice@washoeschools.net
     
    Once we review your application, we will contact you to schedule your orientation.
     
     
     SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS ARE REQUIRED TO WORK AT LEAST 10 TIMES A YEAR.
