Substitute Services

Do you enjoy working with students in a learning environment?

Do you want a flexible work schedule without holiday or weekend work hours?

We would love to have you be a part of Northshore and take an active role in the education of our student by becoming a substitute!

Even if you're wishing to obtain permanent placement, we highly recommend that you consider applying for substitute employment (classified or certificated). Substitutes within our district have the exclusive chance to become better familiarized with our district and the uniqueness of each school location as well as various employment opportunities. Frequently, our substitutes are hired for permanent positions because staff, principals and supervisors have seen their skills and abilities in-person during substitute assignments. You can view and apply for both permanent and substitute positions at the same time through our online application process.

Apply to be come a certificated substitute (WA State Teaching Certificate required) or a classified substitute (paraeducators, school assistants, office personnel, nurses, etc) now!

Already hired as a substitute with our district? Visit the Current Substitutes page for helpful resources including a copy of the Substitute Handbook you received at orientation.
