The New Jersey Administrative Code permits the issuance of a county substitute certificate to those who complete a minimum of 60 semester-hour credits in an accredited college. Within the county of issuance, it authorizes day-to-day substitute teaching limited to 20 consecutive days of service in the same position in one district during the school year.
A certificated teacher who is substitute teaching in an area outside the scope of his or her certificate is subject to the same limitation. A vocational county substitute certificate may be granted on the basis of appropriate work experience in lieu of the credit requirement.
To become a substitute teacher, please contact our Human Resources department.
