Substitute Teaching

The Wright City R-II School District values the substitute teachers who educate our students on an as-needed basis.

The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education provides multiple avenues for an individual to qualify for a substitute certificate if an they do not already have a Missouri teaching certificate:

  • A Content Substitute certificate may be granted to an individual who has completed a minimum of 36 semester hours of credit from a regionally accredited, academic degree-granting, college or university. Verification of these hours must be provided with an original transcript from each institution the applicant has attended. International transcripts are evaluated by an approved credentialing agency. More information is available here. This change from 60 semester hours of credit to 36 semester hours of credit occurred as a part of Senate Bill 681, which was signed by Governor Parsons and became effective as of June, 2022.
  • A Content Substitute certificate may also be granted to an individual who has successfully completed a minimum of twenty (20) clock hours of department-approved substitute teacher training available through the following links:
