Each county school system has a separate process but it basically involves an application, evidence of a degree of some type, background check. If you don't have teaching experience they may offer a crash course in how to manage a classroom. I looked on the CMS web site, it wasn't very helpful and didn't include a link on "become a substitute teacher."

Here's what I did find....it shows pay scale along with some other things.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (http://www.cms.k12.nc.us/departments/HR/subTA/index.asp - broken link)

I suggest calling the main number and see who you are transferred to. 980-343-3000

Here is a site which will answer many of your questions about substitute teaching in CMS. Depending on where you live or will live, I'd also investigate the independent schools. This way you might get a long term assignment as some of my acquaintances have. If you let us know where you will live, we can probably help you find which schools might geographically be best for you.

Here's a site for Union County:

yeah, you will find all the info you need on the district sites. after you hand in your paperwork, be prepared to wait a while before they aprove you and you can start working. if you have any q's about subbing for union county schools specifically just let me know. i started subbing for union county elementary schools in sept on the days that i am not at my internship site (for school counseling). i love it.

I live in zip code 28277. I'm assuming the process is different for independent schools vs. public. Any suggestions for independent schools?

Thanks.

You are most likely closest to Charlotte Latin, but not too far from Charlotte Country Day's Middle School on Green Rea Road. If you continue down Carmel Road after the CCDS middle school you'd come to the CCDS elementary and high school. Providence Day, Charlotte Christian and Charlotte Prep wouldn't be too far east on Fairview/Sardis Road either. Except for the time of day when you'd probably be on the road you'd have no trouble getting to the independent schools.

I don't know the process for applying to these schools. I'd call each one and find out what their particular process is. Even better, go to the office of each school and introduce yourself. I think that this would give you a good entree into the school.

I have been trying to get into the Union County schools for over a year. When I lived in NJ, I was required to take the Praxis exam for Highly Qualified Paraprofessionals and passed with 100%. It seems so difficult to get in. I am considering taking the sub route and have gotten my clearance to work in the schools but I hear the process is long.

Substitutes who have a teacher's license can probably earn $75 or so per school day. Without a license, it's probably, $50-60.

I would suggest that you check to see how much substitute teachers are paid. It is BBBAAAADDD! I think that the top for the day is $60. with a teaching certificate. I would look into McDonalds. Pay is better and you will get lots more respect. Actually, I am just kidding about McDonalds. I have a certification in teaching and may teach when I move to Cornelius. Teacher pay is pretty good in the area, but subs. are really underpaid. And it is always so hard to get quality substitute teachers. Good luck and it is quite easy to look up information on the internet under Charlotte/Mecklenburg Schools homepage.
