If you have a bachelor’s degree:
Silver Falls School District will sponsor you for a Restricted Oregon Substitute Teaching license through The Oregon Teachers Standards & Practices Commission (TSCP). This process is as follows:
- Apply for a first-time license with the TSPC’s eLicensing application. Complete details about the requirements for licensure are also available from TSPC.
- After submitting your application and paying the required fee, TSPC will provide emailed instructions that will guide you through the process of obtaining a background check and fingerprinting.
- TSPC will require you to submit official transcripts showing your completion of a bachelor’s degree or higher.
- Once you have applied for your license and paid the fee, send a copy of your college transcripts (official or unofficial) showing completion of your bachelor’s degree to Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Upon receipt of your transcripts, we will submit our letter of sponsorship to TSPC.
- Once you have completed your TSPC License application and sent your transcripts to Human Resources, visit EduStaff and register for our substitute pool.
- On the Edu Staff website, if prompted, select the option that indicates that you are a licensed substitute, even though your license application is still in process.
- It may take TSPC up to 3 months to process your teaching license application. However, once you are registered with Edu Staff, we will request that you be allowed to substitute teach for us while your application is still in process.
If you don’t have a bachelor’s degree but are interested in substitute teaching, please contact Human Resources at email@example.com for more information.
