Help make a difference and serve as a substitute

HR teacher
Teacher and paraprofessional (aides) substitutes are an extremely important component in ensuring Yorkville Community Unit School District 115 students receive the best possible educational programming. With more than 850 employees in the district, finding qualified substitutes is a daily process.
A substitute will receive a daily rate of $115 ($57.50 per half-day assignment). The pay rate for long-term substitutes has been set at $115 per day for the first 10 days, and then $165 per day (retroactive to the first day of the assignment) after day 10.

To serve as a District 115 substitute, interested individuals must possess a Substitute License (bachelor's degree required) or a valid Professional Educators License with a teaching endorsement. To obtain a Substitute License from the Kendall County Regional Office of Education, applicants must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited four-year institution (official transcript must be provided) and authorization, which includes a health physical and fingerprinting. The Kendall County Regional Office of Education is located in downtown Yorkville at 109 W. Ridge Street in the lower level of the Old Historic Courthouse (www.roe24.org).
Once a Substitute License and authorization is received from the Regional Office of Education, substitute candidates are encouraged to visit the District 115 Administrative Center at 602 Center Parkway, Yorkville, to complete a substitute packet.

Once included in the district's substitute pool, substitutes may receive automated calls between 5:30 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. listing available substitute positions. Individual preferences regarding phone calls as well as the ability to view and accept open positions electronically, is available through the district's online substitute management system.
