Substitute Teacher Registration Information

  • Thank you for your interest in substitute teaching in Marin County. We appreciate your desire to become part of the highly-valued Marin County Office of Education substitute teacher pool serving students countywide.

    This video provides the most recent information about applying to become a substitute.


    Substitute Registration:

    This first step to becoming a substitute is to register on the countywide substitute list. The countywide substitute packet is available for pick-up at the county office (1111 Las Gallinas Ave., San Rafael) or click on the 2022/2023 Countywide Substitute Registration packet.

     

    All applicants complete the same registration packet. This includes those who are new to substituting, those who are retired, or those who previously taught in a district. Registration packets are accepted until June 16, 2023.  

     

    There are three options for delivering the countywide substitute registration packet:

    • Mail: P.O. Box 4925, San Rafael, 94913 (Please include "Attn: Amy Ridings" or Attn: Credentials Analyst" on the envelope).
    • In-person delivery: Monday - Friday from 7:30a.m. - 4:30p.m. at 1111 Las Gallinas Ave., San Rafael. There is a locked inbox outside my office door. 
    • Schedule a meeting by visiting Calendly.

     

    Direct District Hire - Emergency 30 Day Permit Application:

    For applicants who have been told by a district you are a direct hire, meaning you do not need to complete the countywide substitute registration packet, but need assistance with the Emergency 30 Day Permit application, please see below:

    1. Complete the Emergency 30 Day Permit Recommendation form.
    2. Provide official transcripts. Please review this page regarding acceptable transcript formats.
    3. Provide the basic skills information. There are eight basic skills options. For more information, review this leaflet. 
    4. Complete the Commission on Teacher Credentialing's live scan form (A0281), if not already completed.
      1. Live scanning for a district does not meet this requirement.
