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 SRREA 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 license. You may qualify for a Minnesota Short-Call Substitute license if you hold a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree.

Why Become a Substitute with Sauk Rapids-Rice Public Schools?
Beginning February 2, 2015, Sauk Rapids-Rice substitutes will be compensated at $120 a day, which aligns with compensation in other Minnesota school districts.
In addition, substitutes will be strongly encouraged to complete eight hours of specialized training related to behavior management, cultural competency, differentiation, literacy, mathematics, mental health, the Sauk Rapids-Rice School District (i.e. orientation), and technology. While trainings will be offered at various times and in various ways throughout the year, substitutes will also be able to evidence other recent, yet equivalent training in the previously identified areas in lieu of District training. Individuals who complete the training within 12 months of the rate increase beginning February 2, 2015 AND who substitute within the Sauk Rapids-Rice School District for at least 10 days (80 hours) beginning February 2, 2015, will also qualify for an additional $100 stipend. Stipends will be available in accordance with District guidelines as noted in the Professional Development for Substitutes form below.
