New Employee Orientation - Substitutes

Thank you for your interest in becoming a substitute teacher in the Alamance-Burlington School System. The first step to becoming a substitute teacher is to apply online.

The Alamance-Burlington School System requires that anyone interested in becoming a substitute teacher complete “Effective Teacher Training for Substitutes” prior to becoming a substitute teacher. This training is offered through Alamance Community College at various intervals throughout the year.  You can contact Paula at 336-506-4219 to get more information regarding this class or you can click here to visit Alamance Community College's website. Upon successful completion of the training, please drop off or mail a copy of the certificate you receive to the Alamance-Burlington School System Human Resources Department. We will also accept a certificate stating that you have completed the Teacher Assistant Program at ACC in lieu of the Effective Teacher Training. If you have a teaching certificate whether current or expired, you may submit this also, in lieu of the Effective Teacher Training. Once you have submitted your certificate, you will be scheduled for New Employee Orientation.
