Substitute Teacher Registration
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 NOTE: New Substitute Teachers will be compensated for their attendance (at the half-day substitute teacher rate) at the mandatory substitute orientation once they have completed the online application. (on scheduled pay dates)
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). Recertification of OH&S training is required annually for all WCPS teachers and substitute teachers.
- Overview of WCPS Substitute Guidelines.
RETURNING TEACHERS & EMPLOYEES

Attendance at an Orientation session is optional, however, you must complete the form to choose your registration process.

If you choose not to attend an orientation session hosted by WCPS, you will have 60 school operational days to complete the required Occupational Health and Safety Training (OH&S) on your own time (prep time included).
