If you would like to be considered as a substitute for the 2014-2015 school year, you may submit or update your online application at  You will need to have a minimum of two professional references with at least one coming from a former supervisor/principal.  The reference process is electronic; therefore, accurate email addresses must be listed.  We strongly recommend you contact your references and notify them they will be receiving electronic reference requests.  Delays in reference submissions will slow down the process.  If you are applying for a substitute teaching role, you will also be required to complete the TeacherInsight™ Survey.

Selection of substitutes is based on a review of your application and the current needs of our district. Preference may be given to applicants who hold a valid Texas teaching certificate. If you are selected, you will be contacted via email with further instructions. It is important that your online application lists an active, current email address and that you respond to our requests for updates and paperwork in a timely manner. 

Current / Former PISD Employees:  Once you have submitted a resignation and it has been processed by Human Resources, you may complete the online application from the link above, select New Applicant and create a new TEAMS user ID and password.  After you have submitted your online application, send an e-mail stating your interest in substituting during the upcoming school year to  In your e-mail, please indicate your status as a former employee and if you have recently retired through TRS.

NOTE: If you have recently retired through TRS, we will begin the hiring process for you thirty days after the later of: the date you receive your last PISD paycheck; or your last day of employment.
