Our substitute teachers and associates are a well-respected and integral part of our classrooms as we provide families with more educational choices than any place in Iowa.

At WCSD, substitutes get a foot in the door of the sixth-largest district in the state. They customize their own schedules and establish contacts with principals as well as staff in an assortment of grade levels. More than 20% of new teacher hires come from our substitute pool.

Regardless of your level of education, you may still qualify to be a substitute teacher. Visit the Heartland Area Education Agency or the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners website for more information. Our substitute positions do not require a four-year degree.
