The Sauk Rapids-Rice School District, like other Minnesota districts, remains proactive and creative in securing and sustaining qualified teacher substitutes. The district actively recruits and works with recent graduates at their specific university and/or college, has sought out past retirees who might be interested in substituting and partnered with the Sauk Rapids-Rice Education Association to develop possible solutions to maintain competitive compensation.
Substitute Teaching License
To qualify for a substitute teacher position, you will need to obtain a valid Minnesota teaching license in any content area OR a valid Minnesota short-call substitute teaching license. You may qualify for a Minnesota short-call substitute teaching license if you hold a minimum of a bachelor’s degree.
To apply for a teaching license and/or if you have licensure questions, please contact Minnesota Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board (PELSB) staff at (651) 539-4200.
If you have a Minnesota teaching license (i.e. substitute or standard) and are interested in applying for work in the Sauk Rapids-Rice School District, please visit our employment page to complete and application and register for an upcoming Substitute Orientation Session.
