Additional Information:


IMPORTANT HIRING MESSAGE: Once hired, your initial substitute training certificate is good for three (3) years and it will expire on June 30th of the third year. Your initial certification must be used to gain employment at a county board of education within the first year of issuance or it becomes invalid. (Policy 5202 ~ 11.5.1.A.)

Some counties do not hire Policy 5202 substitute teachers. Please be sure to verify information with the county in which you primarily want to work.

Completion of the Substitute Teacher training is only one step in the process for employment as a substitute teacher in West Virginia public schools. Applicants must work with a local school district to complete additional requirements.


COMPLETION OF THE SUBSTITUTE TEACHER TRAINING PROVIDED BY RESA 7 DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY RESULT IN THE ISSUANCE OF A VALID CERTIFICATE TO SUBSTITUTE TEACH IN WEST VIRGINIA.
