District 70 is accepting applications for substitute work for the 2019-2020 school year.
The requirement for previous teaching experience and/or student teaching has been lifted, though is still preferred. At minimum you need to hold a Substitute Teaching License (SUB) license from the ISBE and be registered in Lake County. There is no longer a requirement for teaching experience, a teaching degree or student-teaching.

After you have been invited to attend an orientation meeting you should download the Health Record (physical) form below.  Bring it with you to orientation, or provide it as soon after that as possible.
