Substitute Teaching

To substitute in District 196, we require you to have a valid Minnesota teaching license and attend an orientation meeting. Your substitute teaching application must be completed and submitted online prior to your scheduled orientation session.

District 196 will be accepting two-year short call substitute licenses. There will be a separate training specific to these short call subs. This also applies to persons currently holding two-year licenses that are subbing in other districts. Please contact Barb Hall at if you would like to attend a training.
