2. How can I become a substitute teacher?
Thank you for your interest in becoming a substitute teacher for the Crisp County School System. To work as a substitute you must:
Complete a three-hour State-Mandated training session;
Complete a Crisp County local orientation;
Agree to a criminal background check including fingerprints, and
Be approved by the local Board of Education.
Applicants who have a valid (unexpired) teaching or paraprofessional certificate issued by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission are exempt from the three-hour State-Mandated training session; however, the Crisp County local orientation, criminal background check (including fingerprints) and local Board of Education approval are required for placement on the substitute teacher list. The teacher substitute list is designed for principals at the schools to contact personnel to sub in a classroom during regular school hours and during the school year.
For information on Substitute Teacher Workshops offered by Chattahoochee-Flint Regional Education Service Agency (RESA), please call 1-800-541-9442. You may also register online at www.mgresa.org
to attend one of the workshops conducted by Middle Georgia RESA.

The Crisp County School System continually accepts online applications for this position; however, new substitutes are added to the list only after successfully completing all requirements, including local orientation.
