Substitute Teachers

West Carrollton Schools recognizes that the best instruction occurs in the classroom when the regular teacher is present. However, when absences are necessary, West Carrollton Schools seeks to provide a qualified substitute teacher for the class. Thank you for your interest in working in our district. All questions about substitute teaching should be directed to the Human Resources Department Administrative Assistant Lisa Green at 859-5121, ext. 1119 or [email protected].
