Information for Retiring Teachers who wish to apply for the Substitute List

Here are some things you need to know:

  • If you are still working and wish to be considered for the sub list upon retirement, you can indicate that in the letter you send to the Division when you give notice of your intent to retire.  The deadline to submit this letter is October 31 for retirement at the end of December and April 30 for retirement at the end of June.
  • If you have retired in the last year, you can send a letter to the Division indicating that you wish to be considered for the sub list.
  • If you have been retired longer than one year, you must complete a new application but are not required to submit copies of transcripts.  You will also need a new Criminal Record Check and Child Abuse Registry check.

PLEASE NOTE:  At no time is a retired teacher guaranteed placement on the substitute list.  The Division will consider retirees for the sub list but are in no way obligated to place a retired teacher on the list.
