Lane ESD maintains a list of approved substitute teachers on behalf of Lane County school districts, with the exception of Eugene 4J, Springfield, South Lane, Siuslaw and Mapleton School Districts. To apply to be a substitute teacher in these districts you must contact these districts directly.

In order to substitute you must have a valid Oregon Teaching License. Oregon teacher licensure requirements are available at Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC).

Individuals who are interested in registering as a substitute are encouraged to review the overview of the process and other information located in the Lane County Teacher Substitutes Q & A.

Substitute Registration

The registration process is for licensed teachers who have not previously registered, who have been removed from the teacher substitute list or who wish to expand the district preferences.

There are five registration periods for the 2015-2016 school year:

  • July 31, 2015 through August 7, 2015
  • September 18, 2015 through September 25, 2015

  • February 5, 2016 through February 12, 2016
  • March 18, 2016 through March 25, 2016

Registration involves three steps.

  1. Online application
