Temporary & Substitute Opportunities

Substitutes play a critical role in maintaining the continuity of students’ learning environment, and OUSD is always looking for qualified and interested candidates. 

Become a Substitute Teacher

Statistics indicate that one full year of instruction in every student's K-12 education will be provided by a guest (substitute) teacher. 

Guest teaching is an excellent means of exploring the teaching field as a career, offering opportunities for hands-on experience with a variety of classrooms and student populations.

Non-teaching Substitute Positions

Many of the positions in OUSD are outside of the classroom and OUSD needs subs for many of these every day to keep our students' education on track!

Classified staff keep our buildings and facilities clean and in repair, prepare and serve thousands of meals daily, directly support Special Needs students in the classroom, and perform a variety of essential clerical tasks such as School Attendance, School Front Desk support, and Administrative and Clerical support in schools and central office departments.
