Substitute Teacher Orientation

Every prospective NCSSA substitute teacher must attend a Substitute Teacher Orientation prior to employment with the NCSSA. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the orientation will consist of two parts. Part one is a Virtual Orientation via Zoom and part two will be a Paperwork-Only Orientation.  You cannot attend a Paperwork-Only Orientation until you have completed the Virtual Orientation via Zoom and have been invited to attend.

In order to maintain social distancing, space is limited at each Paperwork-Only Orientation. We can only accommodate those who register to attend.  If there is a need, we will host multiple orientations in one day. We also will need time in between the sessions to properly sanitize the room, so we ask that you do not arrive early.  We ask that all participants wear a facial covering.

After you have reviewed the schedule listed to the right, you must click on the date of choice to register. If you have any questions, please call our office at 330.723.6393 x 127.


Safe and Engaged Training Class 
A more intense, full-day training, called Safe and Engaged Training Class, is required of substitute teachers who hold a “substitute only” license and have no formal training in education or who have been out of the classroom for longer than five (5) years.
Due to safety concerns surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, we will be offering the Safe & Engaged class online through STEDI's SubSkills Online Training Program. Please use the ESC of Medina County as your school district.
