  • The application and pre-employment background questions on the application must be completed before an individual is officially considered an applicant.

  • Once a position has been filled, unsuccessful candidates may not receive status updates or notice that a position has been filled. If you have not heard from us within 2-3 weeks, you can assume that the position has been filled.

Being hired as a substitute is a decision that is made by NWRESD Substitute Management Services in conjunction with the various school district offices we support. The district office is the final word on all substitute hiring. Any and all open positions will be posted on our current “Job Openings” page. If there are not open positions posted at the time you are inquiring, please feel free to check back often. Substitutes will be hired only when open positions are posted.


Please review all information here as it will answer many of the questions substitute candidates have.
