    Substitute Teaching

    The substitute teacher approval process may take approximately 30 working days from beginning to end before the substitute can start. You will be contacted throughout the approval process to update you of an anticipated start date. When approved, you will receive notification inviting you to a required monthly substitute orientation.

    Thank you for your interest in Substitute Teaching for Union County Public Schools. For questions about requirements to apply, please refer to the checklist of required information located in the Substitute Application Package found below. Send your substitute application along with all required documents to Elaine Cox at the address found on the cover page of the application.

    For former UCPS teachers who would like to substitute teach, you will need to fill out a substitute application packet, as this is a new position.  If you have been separated from UCPS for over one year, a new NC State Health Certificate Form is required with your application.

    We appreciate your support and cooperation.
