Substitute Teachers

Substitute Teacher Orientation

Wolf Creek Public Schools requires all substitutes within our division to attend an orientation session once per school calendar year. 

These orientation sessions will provide:

  • Opportunity for networking and support.
  • Overview of the online substitute absence management system.
  • Overview and onsite completion of annual compulsory Occupational, Health and Safety Training (OH&S). Re-certification of OH&S training is required annually for all WCPS teachers and substitute teachers.
  • Overview of WCPS Substitute Guidelines.

**Please note our Substitute Teacher orientation for the 2019/2020 School Year is now open.**


Orientation Dates are as follows: 

August 27th - Returning Subs 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. (Registration is full)

August 27th - New Substitutes 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m (Registration open, see below for link)

New Subs-“New subs” are defined as teachers who have never been employed in any capacity (including as an EA) by WCPS.  All “New Subs” are required to attend an orientation session. Please see the linked information and registration for new subs HERE.



Returning Substitute Teachers and Employees (INCLUDING RETIRED TEACHERS) -“Returning Substitute Teachers and Employees” includes anyone who has worked for WCPS in any capacity (including retired teachers, former contract teachers, substitute teachers).  “Returning Substitute Teachers and Employees” are required to attend an orientation session. Note: August 27th session is now FULL. We have opened a new session for returning subs on August 29th from 9:00-11:00. Please see the linked information and registration for returning subs HERE. 



New or Existing Contract Teachers- “New" or existing part-time contract teachers who wish to be eligible for the 19/20 WCPS substitute list may submit their names by following this Link. 

New or existing contract teachers are NOT required to attend an orientation session as the online substitute absence management system and Occupational, Health and Safety Training (OH&S) topics will be covered at your school sites.

It is important to note that attendance (except for WCPS contracted part-time teachers) is required in order to be placed on the sub roster for the 2019/2020 school year. Catch-up sessions will be offered at a later date for anyone who is unable to attend the initial sessions offered.


Thank you, we appreciate your commitment and support for our students and teachers. If you require any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact WCPS People Services.
