Farmington Area Public Schools recognize substitute teachers as a very valuable asset to our educational process. Whether your stay is short or continues over a long period of time, each time you enter a classroom to teach, you are responsible for the most important resource we have in this district -- our children.

A short-call substitute licensure candidate must hold a minimum of a bachelor’s degree. Minnesota candidates that have completed student teacher through a teacher preparation program, but do not yet have a bachelor’s degree awarded may apply. The student teaching grade must be posted on the transcripts. In lieu of a bachelor’s degree, a candidate may evidence five years of work experience, an associate’s degree, OR a professional certification from an approved certifying organization that is directly aligned to a Career and Technical (CTE) or Career Pathways licensure field. The short-call substitute license is valid for three years, expires on June 30 of the expiration year and may be renewed an unlimited number of times
