PUSD calls for substitute teachers amid qualified staffing shortage

Piedmont Unified School District officials on Monday issued a call for new applicants for substitute teacher positions in an email sent to district families. In the letter, Superintendent Randy Booker wrote:

“In an effort to return to on-campus instruction, we are asking for your help. Finding qualified substitute teachers has been an ongoing struggle for all school districts over the past few years.  The COVID pandemic has made it much more difficult.

I am hoping that you might consider signing up for our substitute teacher pool.  I’ve provided the basic information below to get started and we’ll absolutely assist along the way!

Substitute teaching is one way that the community can help us remain with on-campus instruction for the rest of this school year.  Thank you in advance for all of your support!”

An application fee and fingerprinting are required. According to the letter, substitute teachers are paid $140.00 for a full day and $70.00 per half day.

An emergency 30-day substitute teaching permit application is available by emailing Kim Randlett in the district’s human resources office.
