SUBSTITUTE TEACHER TRAINING


Rutherford County Schools



Thank you for your interest in substitute teaching with Rutherford County Schools (RCS). The Rutherford County Board of Education requires prospective substitutes to complete appropriate training and maintain an approved criminal history check in accordance with Rutherford County Board of Education Policy 7100: Recruitment and Selection of Personnel and Administrative Procedures. Substitutes are approved at the monthly Board meeting.

All new substitutes are required to complete the Rutherford County NC Substitute Training hosted through the App-Garden University online system. The courses offered provide certification for substitute teaching in Rutherford County Schools. To qualify, all potential substitutes must possess one of the following:


  • A North Carolina teaching license, or

  • A transcript of successful completion of at least 48 semester hours of college coursework, or • A high school diploma and a written recommendation by the Principal for employment only at that school.

Prospective substitutes must pass one of the three training series described below. Please review carefully to determine the appropriate course for you.

You must complete each series and pass the quiz at the end of each series. You will be able to print a certificate (PDF) upon successful completion of the course.

Important information:

Please be aware that once you are an approved substitute, you will be assigned a rcsnc.org email account. You will be given instructions on how to access this email upon approval. It is important you understand the need to check it often for substitute updates such as renewal notifications and Frontline Absence Management information.
