Want to be a Substitute Teacher?
The County Schools Office maintains the substitute teacher list for all of the districts in the county. To be on the substitute teacher list, you must have a valid California teaching credential or permit, clear fingerprint screening for this office, have proof of a clear TB assessment or test within the last four years and complete basic employment paperwork.
If you need to apply for a California Substitute Teaching Permit, you will need a bachelor’s degree and a passing Basic Skills score. The Tuolumne County Superintendent of Schools Office will apply for your initial substitute permit or help you renew an expired substitute permit.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to sign up at each school?
But because all districts have a difference tax identification number, you will be required to fill out payroll paperwork at each district.
I have been fingerprinted before. Do I still need fingerprints?
(Even if you have been fingerprinted at this office for another agency, we will need to fingerprint you specifically for us so that we receive your clearance directly from CA Department of Justice.)
I retired from a district in Tuolumne County. Do I need to be on the substitute list to sub at the district where I taught?
How long is my Emergency 30-day subbing permit valid?
Does an Emergency 30-day subbing permit mean that I can only sub for 30 days?
