Substitute Applicants and Future Teachers


    Who are we looking for?

    We seek highly- dedicated professionals to deliver quality engaging instruction that will spark our students imagination, retain their interest and promote a student-centered environment.


     Why should I become a substitute?

    • Create a life-long love for learning in a student’s educational experience
    • We often hire substitutes for full-time positions who have displayed excellence in job performance and follow ethical practices.
    • Flexibility to schedule your own working days and locations
    • Exposure to various grade levels and campuses within Fort Bend ISD

    What to expect during the selection, screening and hiring process?

     Screening of Application

    • Preliminary Background Check
    • Initial Screening Interviews for those with only 60+ college hours
    • Fingerprints (FAQ)
    • Complete New Hire “Smart Forms”

    Substitute teacher applicants are screened every few weeks. Once your application is evaluated, you will be contacted via email in order to inform you if we require more information for you to meet our screening requirements or if you will move forward in the process. Additionally, all candidates whom only have 60+ college hours will be emailed instructions on how to complete and submit a video interview as part of your application requirements. Substitute teacher orientations are generally held twice a month (less during the months with long holiday breaks) and for most of the school year.


    Prior to being invited to the mandatory orientation you will be asked to complete state fingerprinting requirements and clear a criminal background check. We will provide you with the information needed to schedule and pay for your fingerprint appointment. Completion of the fingerprinting process will not guarantee employment.


    Are there other mandatory trainings I have to complete?

    All substitutes will be required to complete the following Annual Staff Trainings. You will have 45 days from the first day of school or employment date to complete these trainings in order to continue as an active employee in the system.

    • Universal Precautions 
    • Emergency Management
    • Child Abuse Reporting
    • Confidentiality 
    • Bullying and the Law
