Qualifying to Substitute Teach
To qualify to substitute teach at Niles Community Schools you must have at least 60 credit hours.
If you will be teaching with 60 credit hours OR an expired teaching certificate, you are required to hold a "150 day permit" from the Michigan Department of Education.
The fee for this permit is $45.00 per school year.  Upon registration with EDUStaff, a permit application will be sent to the Michigan Department of Education on your behalf.  Prompt payment of this fee is required in order to substitute teach and remain an active sub for Niles Community Schools.
