Don't be concerned if non-certified applicants pay for training prior to employment. They learn early on:
You expect your teachers to receive a teaching degree that could cost as much as $74,000. You expect your bus drivers to have an appropriate license, your office personnel to have the appropriate skills, why not your substitute teachers?
And, if you reward them by allowing them to apply to substitute teach, they are the first to say that they want to pay for the training. Each year, STEDI.org, trains thousands of substitute teachers under the request by the district and paid for by the individual substitute teacher applicant, then are rewarded by having the opportunity to receive an application and go through the district screening process.
To receive a $250 college course designed by Utah State University and delivered by STEDI.org for only $39.95 is not only a bargain, but an investment that applicants will be glad to pay knowing that they benefit, the school district benefits, and the students benefit.
Here are some of the current promotions going on for your school district or for your substitute teachers. Make sure you take the time to invite your substitute teachers to take advantage of these opportunities before they are gone.
