North Allegheny hosting Q&A session for ‘guest’ substitute teacher program

Tony LaRussa

The North Allegheny School District is hosting a question and answer session for college graduates who are interested in serve as substitute teacher.

The July 18 event begins at 2 p.m. and is aimed at people who hold a bachelor’s degree in any subject from an accredited college or university in the United States but do not have state teaching certificate.

Applications for the Fall 2019 “Guest Substitute Teacher” program will be accepted through July 31. Successful candidates will be invited to attend a mandatory program orientation on Sept. 17.

People who already have a teaching certificate must register with the Northern Area Substitute Teacher Service Consortium to serve as a substitute teacher for the district. The consortium also accepts applications for substitutes in the Hampton and Avonworth school districts.

People in the Guest Substitute Teacher program who meet the eligibility requirements will receive an emergency permit from the Pennsylvania Department of Education that lasts for one school year. Permits can be renewed at the district’s discretion for subsequent years.

People selected for the program must attend a one-day orientation, a pair of four-hour classroom observations and a 10-hour online training course.

The district pays substitute teachers $90 a day for the first 90, non-consecutive days; and $110 for subsequent days during the same school year.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
