Substitute Teaching Information
Dear Potential Substitute,
Welcome to Princeton! Becoming a substitute teacher is a great way to get yourself involved in the school community as well as the most realistic “proving ground” for anyone who may be looking for full-time employment someday. Many of our current employees first worked as substitutes and are now enjoying contracted employment in the high-achieving and high-performing school district that Princeton indeed is!
Whether you are looking for that “proving ground” leading to potential full time employment some day or if you are simply interested in the flexibility and experiences in being a day-to-day substitute, you, as a substitute teacher, are one of the most vital parts of our school system. It would be extremely difficult for us to operate our school on a satisfactory basis without all persons such as yourself serving as substitutes.
The first step in becoming a substitute teacher is to complete the paperwork in the pdf document on this page. All of this paperwork, including the criminal history check, fingerprinting, "Sexual Misconduct/Child Abuse Disclosure" form(s), and getting your substitute certificate must be completed before you contact the Human Resources office to be interviewed.
Pertaining to the "Sexual Misconduct/Child Abuse Disclosure" form(s), not only must you turn those forms into us in the HR department, we must then submit them to your previous employers who legally have 20 days by state law to send them back to us BEFORE you can be scheduled for an interview. So if you submit the paperwork on your end, and are wondering why you have not received a call to be interviewed, it may very well be because we are waiting to hear back from your previous employer(s). Once we receive that information, we will schedule you as soon as possible.
Should you have any questions about the paperwork, please contact Diana McClan, Secretary to Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources, at (609) 806-4207 x 4. However, there is a cover sheet which hopefully can answer most of your questions
Thank you for your interest. We look forward to meeting with you soon.
Michael J. Volpe
Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources and Community Relations
