Criminal History Background Check
All prospective substitute teachers in Oregon are subject to a criminal history background check. The school district where you wish to work as a substitute will provide you with the necessary fingerprint card and forms. Take them to your local law enforcement agency that offers fingerprint services. They will complete the card and form and return them to you in a sealed envelope. Send this envelope to the TSPC with your application for a substitute teaching license.
For more information on substitute teaching positions near you, contact your local school district.
