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
    • Fingerprints (FAQ)
    • Complete New Hire “Smart Forms”

    Please understand that with the high volume of interest not all applicants will be contacted to participate in an initial screening interview.  Additionally, not all applicants will be invited to participate in the final four- hour mandatory orientation. Substitute teacher interviews and orientations are generally held once a month from September through March.

    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?
