Substitute Teachers

Information for New Substitute Teacher Candidates


Thank you for your interest in substituting for our school district. Here is some important information:

  • The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has requirements for substitute teaching that include obtaining certification, submitting college transcripts, and completing a criminal fingerprinting/background clearance. These requirements must be met prior to beginning employment with our school district and are outlined at the link above.  
  • You must complete an application for our school district: Substitute Application 
  • After we receive your application, you will be contacted for an interview based upon our current need for substitutes.

Please contact Debbie Dragoo at 816-892-1321 or with questions.
