Lane ESD maintains a list of approved substitute teachers on behalf of Lane County school districts, with the exception of Eugene 4J, Springfield, and Siuslaw School Districts. To apply to be a substitute teacher in these districts you must contact these districts directly.

In order to substitute you must have a valid Oregon Teaching License. Oregon teacher licensure requirements are available at Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC).

Individuals who are interested in registering as a substitute are encouraged to review the overview of the process and other information located in the Lane County Teacher Substitutes Q & A.

Substitute Registration

The registration process is for licensed teachers who have not previously registered, who have been removed from the teacher substitute list, or who wish to expand the district preferences.

There are five registration periods for the 2022-2023 school year:

  • July 23 – Sept 16
  • Sept 17 – Nov 18
  • Nov 19 – Jan 20
  • Jan 21 – Feb 26
  • Feb 27 – March 26
  • March 27 – April 23

Please note: Applicants will not be contacted by Lane ESD until the week after the registration period has ended. The online application link for Lane County Teacher Substitutes is active only during the open enrollment dates listed above.

Registration involves three steps:

  1. Online Application
    Note: When listing work history information, list only paid education employment. Do not include volunteer work or student teaching.
  2. Required Training
    Within 5 days of Lane County Teacher Substitute application period closing, individuals will receive an email notification from Public School Works. The initial notification provides information on account set up including username and password and should be retained for future use. The second email will identify the specific trainings you are required to complete and associated timelines.
  3. Scheduled Orientation (to show proof of identification and issue substitute card)
    Individuals will be contacted to schedule an appointment after online training has been completed.
