Applications for substitute teachers in all subject areas are accepted by the district throughout the year. Daily substitutes are not advertised for and are on an on-call basis. Call arrangements are made through the Teacher Registry services provided by Broome-Tioga BOCES.

Please be aware that there is no guarantee that you will be called for any specific number of days, or on a regular basis, or at all.


  • Bachelor's degree from an accredited university.
  • Background clearance through New York State Education Department (fee paid by applicant).
  • All district staff must be fingerprinted and clearance received from the NYSED prior to being hired.
Fill out Instructional Application, and addendum if needed. It is not necessary to complete a statement of philosophy for substituting, unless you are submitting the application for a permanent position as well.
You must then bring, in person, your completed application to the JCCSD instructional personnel office.
a) At that time, you will be given a substitute packet and additional hiring instructions and required materials (see below).
b) Our offices are located in the Johnson City High School building; come in through the High School main entrance and sign in, then receive directions to Room 166.
c) Applications are accepted between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 12 noon, and 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on most business days and throughout the summer.
d) You may call to set up an appointment (of about 15 minutes) to submit your application and review the substitute application process - (607) 763-1228.
You will be asked to provide the following documentation prior to being placed on our substitute list:
a) Official college transcript(s), which reflects degree conferral. This may be brought in by you in a SEALED envelope from the college, or sent directly from the college to our office. It is sufficient to supply this for either your Bachelor's or Master's degree.
b) Sealed credentials file from college, or three letters of reference with original signatures. If sealed credentials file contains copies of transcripts, these transcripts will be considered official.
c) Copy of your teaching certificate(s), if you are certified.
d) We will check for your fingerprint clearance, or provide you with a packet and instructions for obtaining. IF YOU ALREADY HAVE FINGERPRINT CLEARANCE, please bring documentation for items 4)a, below, and be prepared to fill out tax forms. We will give you the TB test form, and you will only need to come in this once.
Once we have your application, transcript(s), credentials/letters, certificate(s) if supplying, and fingerprint clearance, you will be called for another appointment to complete these items:
a) Homeland Security form (I-9) for which you will need to bring acceptable unexpired documentation (no copies) (see page 5 here for list).
b) Federal and State tax forms.
c) TB test (you will be given an order slip to get one at our expense, or you can provide proof of having one done within 6 months of submitting your application).
d) Miscellaneous district paperwork as required.
When these items are completed and we have received your TB test results from our provider, you will be placed on the district substitute list.
