LPS Schedules Substitute Teacher Training

LAWTON Okla_ Lawton Public Schools are putting on a training session for potential substitute teachers.

In an effort to heighten the quality of instruction by its substitute teachers, Lawton Public Schools will hold a training session from 1-4 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 24, at the LPS Professional Development Center, 2209 SW 25th St.

The three-hour session is mandatory for anyone who wants to be a substitute at an LPS school, and will cover district policies and provide guidance on how to handle specific classroom situations. It will also help aspiring substitute teachers learn how to utilize "Substitute Finder," an automated system that assigns fill-ins to district schools.  Most importantly, the training informs prospective substitutes of the district's expectations of its teaching staff. 

Qualified substitutes can teach up to 100 school days.  That number can increase for those who have additional education or teacher certification.

To be an LPS substitute, an applicant must have completed at least 60 credit hours of college instruction, and have passed a criminal background check. 

For more information on the qualifications necessary to be a substitute teacher, or to register for the training session, call 580.357.6900 and ask for LPS Substitute Services.
