Certified Substitutes - Teachers

    DISTRICT 8 Guest Teacher requirements: Along with the 3 or 5 year substitute authorization or Initial/Professional License, all applicants will be screened to insure they meet the District’s standards for guest teaching in our District Schools. FFC8 does not accept 1 year authorizations at this time.
    Colorado issues three types of substitute authorizations: a 1-year authorization, a 3-year authorization, and a 5-year authorization. A substitute authorization allows you to work in a Colorado public school as a substitute teacher. The substitute authorizations are issued without grade level or subject endorsement area designations.
    Issuance of a 5-year substitute authorization requires a valid out-of-state teaching license or an expired or valid Colorado teaching certificate or teaching license.
