Substitute Employment

Substitutes play an important role in helping CUSD 303 educate its students. We hope that the Substitute Handbook will answer most of the questions Substitutes might have about working at CUSD 303. Do not hesitate to contact Rosa Deloera, District Substitute Coordinator, at (331) 228-4924 for additional information.

To be eligible to serve as a substitute teacher, you may apply on our website by clicking the Administrative and Non-Teaching position button above. Those with a license to substitute for a certified teacher can also apply through that page. The application for substitute teacher under the Certified/licensed educator button will take you to the Kane County Human Resources Consortium application. The consortium application can be used if you would like to complete one application for more than one school district. Please email to inform her of your interest in subbing and that you have completed the online application. 

A candidate selected to become a substitute in D303 will also need to obtain a background check through Kane County Regional Office of Education located in Geneva at 28 N. First Street (630-232-5955) at their own expense. To set up an appointment to be fingerprinted, please go to the Kane ROE website and click on Fingerprint Appointment.
