Submitted by Geneva Unit District 304

Geneva Unit District 304 is seeking qualified individuals who are interested in serving as a substitute classroom teacher and/or substitute special education assistant at all levels -- preschool, elementary, middle school, and high school -- in the school district.

Individuals who are interested in serving as a substitute in District 304 are invited to a substitute teacher fair Saturday, Feb. 15, at the district office, 227 N. Fourth St.

Information sessions will be held that day at 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. to share and distribute information about the substitute application and selection process, how to procure a substitute teaching license from the Illinois State Board of Education, and general performance expectations for substitute teachers in the District. Sessions will last approximately 45 minutes and will be led by Craig Collins, Assistant Superintendent-Human Resources in District 304. Sessions will repeat, so you need choose only one session to attend.

To register for one of the information sessions on Feb. 15, call Jan Waller at (630) 463-3050.

Candidates for a substitute teaching position who do not possess an Illinois teaching license must hold a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution of higher learning. In addition, candidates must complete an online application, undergo a physical examination and tuberculin skin test, and submit to a criminal-background check. The online application can be accessed on the school district website,
