In order to substitute for the Homer-Center School District , applicants must hold a valid Pennsylvania teaching certificate. A copy of this certificate must be submitted to the district administration office, along with the following items:
FBI Fingerprinting on-line registration www.pa.cogentid.com
Criminal Record Check https://epatch.state.pa.us
Child Abuse History Check Child Abuse Clearance Website
Support Personnel Substitute Application - Nurses, custodians, cafeteria and instructional aides.
After the district administration office has received all of the information, your name will be submitted for approval at the next monthly Board of School Directors meeting. Once approved, you are eligible to begin substitute teaching.
Reimbursement for professional substitutes is $85.00 per day ($42.50 per half day). Payroll deduction for social security, state unemployment compensation and appropriate taxes will be deducted. Payroll is by direct deposit only and no formal checks will be distributed to employees. Please bring a voided check with you your first day of substituting.
On the first day as a new substitute, please obtain and complete payroll papers at the Administration Office (your driver's license and social security card will be required to complete the W-4 and I-9 forms). There is a period of one to three weeks from the date of work to the date of receipt of your paycheck. A copy of our pay schedule will be given to you on the first day that you substitute.
Homer-Center School District now uses the automated calling system AESOP. Once you are approved as a substitute by the Board of School Directors, you will automatically be placed into our automated system. If a substitute cannot be gained through this system, then you may still be phoned by a designated building secretary to schedule substitute work.
If you should have any further questions, please feel free to contact the superintendent's secretary at 724-479-8080 .
