Free Fingerprinting Services for First 100 Registered

Interested in becoming a substitute teacher? The San Diego County Office of Education is hosting a substitute teacher event Jan. 24 with fingerprinting services, permit processing, and career advice from human resources professionals. 

Anyone looking to become a substitute teacher through a 30-day emergency permit is welcome to attend the event from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Jan. 24 at SDCOE's main campus on 6401 Linda Vista Road in Annex B and C. The 30-day permit is valid for one calendar year and allows you to work as a substitute teacher every day of the year, but excludes any long-term (30 days or more) assignments. 

SDCOE credentialing and human resources professionals will be on-hand to answer questions about teaching careers, completing an EdJoin profile, and applying to job openings. The event is sponsored by SchoolsFirst Credit Union and Empower Retirement. 

The first 100 future substitute teachers to attend will be provided free fingerprinting services. Spaces are limited so register today to reserve your time slot.
