Substitute Training

Timpson ISD has scheduled a substitute orientation/training for Thursday, July 25, 2024, at 9 am at the Timpson ISD Event Center.

The training is required each year for those who are recurring substitute teachers or new applicants. If you have never been a substitute teacher at the district, you will need to fill out an application. The application may be obtained prior to the training date at the Central office. An applicant who has never substituted for a school district must be fingerprinted with a criminal background check done before being placed on the sub list. 

When the applicant has completed training, his or her information is uploaded to TEA and he or she will receive an email giving information about getting the fingerprinting scheduled. The fee for the fingerprinting is the responsibility of the applicant. Social distancing will be observed at the training. 

Timpson ISD appreciates our substitute teachers for their faithfulness to help our students. If you have questions, you may call Sherri Strahan at 936/254-2463 Ext. 4100 or email at
