Substitute Opportunities

McKinney ISD processes substitute applications for the current school year through January of that year. Applications submitted after January will be considered for the following school year.

McKinney ISD strives to employ the most qualified applicants; therefore, applicants with a valid teaching certificate will be considered first for substitute teaching positions. In addition to substitute teachers, McKinney ISD utilizes substitutes for paraprofessional staff (clerical and classroom aides) as well as nurses which requires an RN licensure.

All substitute applications must be submitted through the online application system. and will be reviewed in the order they were received. In order to be considered for review, the application must first be complete and the following must be on file:

  • Resume
  • Teaching certificate, if applicable
  • Proof of education (College transcript or High school diploma / GED)
  • Three references, including at least one from a current or most recent employer.

Applicants selected as substitute candidates will be contacted via email with instructions regarding next steps in the onboarding process and are required to be fingerprinted before attending an in-house substitute orientation.

The District provides fingerprinting services onsite at the Administration building, One Duvall Street, McKinney, TX 75069. When scheduling an appointment, select the McKinney ISD Duvall Street location. The fingerprinting cost is approximately $50, paid by the applicant.

All substitutes must be at least 21 years of age.
