MISD to pay for licensing subs

Menominee Indian School District has announced a recruiting effort for substitute teachers.

“Like many districts throughout the state, we can always use the services of additional substitute teachers,” explained MISD Superintendent Wendell Waukau. “And, with the current labor shortage, we decided to be proactive in our recruitment efforts.”

As part of the initiative, the District will pay for training and the cost of Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction substitute teacher licensing.

“We want to make it easy for people interested in substitute teaching to get the training and licensing they need,” Waukau said. “Teaching is a very rewarding career, but not everyone wants to work full time. For those interested in teaching on a part-time basis, substitute teaching could be a great fit for them.”

Requirements include:

• Possessing an associate or bachelor’s degree.

• Attending a one-day training through CESA 6 in Oshkosh. A variety of dates are available. Training is held from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

• Must agree to a one-year commitment to substitute teach at MISD.
