Substitute Teachers 2018/2019

Substitute Teaching

Wolf Creek Public Schools requires MANDATORY half-day orientation sessions for all substitute teachers in our division once per year. These orientation sessions are located at our Division Office, 6000 HW 2A, Ponoka, AB.

The orientation session on November 19th will only be held with a minimum participants of 10 people. The attendees must be registered by November 12th, 2018. If we can not meet the required participants we will postpone this orientation session until after the Christmas break. (We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause to some individuals)

**All registered persons will be notified by email if the minimum enrollment is not met.**

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.


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.


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


New or Existing Contract Teachers-“New or existing  part time contract teachers who wish to be eligible for the 18/19 WCPS substitute list may submit their names by following Google Form 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 2018/2019 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.
