In all districts, applicants for substitute teaching permits must have at least a high school diploma. Some districts may require a college degree or some college credit. Check with your local district for their requirements.
As an applicant for a substitute permit, you must have positive work experiences with children documented.
Criminal History Background Check
You must pass an expanded criminal history check (ECH) prior to a substitute teacher permit being issued. Your school district will either conduct this check through a private company or the Indiana State Police. State, county and national records and sex offender registries will be checked. As the applicant, you must pay for all fees associated with these checks.
If you already have a educator license in Indiana, you do not need to apply for a substitute teaching permit. Each school district will have its own assessment policies and instruments for prospective substitute teachers. The decision as to whether or not you are recommend for a substitute permit is solely up to the district with which you apply.
