Assignment Information

  • Teachers, Paraprofessionals, and Food Service Substitutes

    Teachers, paraprofessionals inside and outside of the classroom, and foodservice substitutes will be able to search for and select assignments using the SmartFind substitute management system when permanent staff members are absent. This online system allows you to set up your own preferences such as building locations, availability, and classification. In addition to using the website to find assignments, SmartFind will also call you directly with assignment information in the mornings or evenings by phone.


    Custodial Substitutes

    Custodial substitutes will receive phone calls directly from the Director of Buildings & Grounds, for substitute assignments.
