Certified Substitutes - Teachers


FFC8 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 FFC8 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.

FFC8 values the support of guest teachers! The district has the highest day guest rate in the Pikes Peak region.

Guest Teacher Salary Information: 

  • $210 per day
