Registration Details:


The Safe and Engaged Substitute Teacher Training Program presented by the Educational Service Center of Medina County (ESCMC) prepares substitute teachers with the knowledge and skills needed to meet the goal of providing consistent delivery of quality instruction in a productive learning environment during the absence of a regular classroom teacher. The one-day class is fast-paced, interactive, and taught by highly qualified trainers who model the various techniques and strategies guest teachers are expected to use. Participants receive instruction in teaching strategies, classroom and behavior management, special education, legal issues, and professionalism.

 The Substitute Teacher Handbook, published by Utah State University‚Äôs Substitute Teaching Institute, is used extensively throughout the class and is available for participants to purchase.  

This training is required for any substitute teacher who holds a substitute only license OR any fully licensed educator who has not had full time classroom teaching experience OR has not student taught within the past 5 years. The registration fee for the class is $75.00 and includes materials, lunch, and other light refreshments. Purchase of the Substitute Teacher Handbook ($30) is optional but highly recommended. The handbook is available at the ESC and can be paid for with the registration below or on the day of class. 

The substitute training classes are held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the ESCMC offices in the Professional Building at 124 W. Washington St., Medina, Ohio 44256. The registration & payment deadline is NOON on September 2nd. Please note that classes may be cancelled and participants rescheduled for a future class if a minimum number of enrollments is not received for one or more of the dates listed below.
