Substitute Orientation

This class is for anyone interested in registering as a substitute teacher through the SCOE Central Substitute System. Qualified candidates must attend this Substitute Orientation, hosted by SCOE Credentials, where we will review in detail what is required to become a substitute teacher in Sonoma County.

Prior to attending a Substitute Orientation, interested candidates must first meet one of the following criteria:

  • Hold a valid California teaching credential or service credential or Emergency Sub Permit
  • Possess a Bachelor’s Degree or higher AND have completed the Basic Skills Requirement. For more information regarding the Basic Skills Requirement, please refer to leaflet CL-667:
  • Current enrollment in a regionally accredited four-year California college or university, completion of a minimum of 90 semester units of coursework from a regionally-accredited four-year college or university, and satisfaction of the Basic Skills Requirement

Please note: There is no cost for the Substitute Orientation; however, there is a “no late admittance policy.” If you are running late, you may be asked to reschedule.

Please bring a pen (blue or black ink), so that you can fill out the forms and take notes.
