Licensed Substitute Employment Opportunities


Clearly indicate on the APS application form that you want to substitute.  If you are applying for full-time employment but you are willing to substitute in the meantime, please note that on your application form as well.

Submit your application form, upload or fax (720-208-0678) your resume and license.  Applications are reviewed monthly, and while we encourage our substitutes to cover all grade levels and subject areas, our selection process is based on highly qualified status. Applicants holding either a professional or provisional license will be considered before applicants holding a 3-year sub authorization.

Before you can be considered for employment all of the following must be received in the licensed employment office:

  • Employment application form (online)
  • Current resume (online)
  • Copy of Colorado Dept of Education Substitute Authorization or Teaching License. (online)
    • One-Year Emergency Authorizations are not accepted.
  • TeacherInsight Survey (instructions and access information available with the online application)
  • Two letters of recommendation must be filed with the substitute office.

Candidates who have complete applications and who pass an initial background screening may be selected to attend an orientation meeting to finish employment requirements, including:

  • Substitute orientation and directions
  • Hiring packet (forms)
  • Child abuse reporting training

Applications are reviewed monthly and hiring decisions are made on an as needed basis.  Substitute orientations are by invitation only.
