    Plano ISD is a community of leaders and learners. Our school district represents a great opportunity for educators to grow and develop professionally.

  • Substitute Information

    To be considered as a substitute for the 2020-2021 school year, you must submit or update your current substitute application online.  Substitute teachers are required to have a bachelor’s degree.  Clerical/assistant substitutes must have high school diploma or the equivalent.

  • 1. Complete the Application

    Complete the application using the "Apply Now" button to the left. Plano ISD requires two (2) references, with the recommendation of including a current or former supervisor. Please include accurate email addresses for both references.

    Contact your references and ensure they have completed the electronic reference request form. The form is sent from the email address donotreply@pisd.edu and is titled "Applicant reference questions". Delays in reference submissions will delay the process.

    If you are a current/former PISD employee: 
    Once you have submitted a resignation and it has been processed by Human Resources, you may complete the online application by selecting New Applicant and creating a new TEAMS user ID and password. 

  • 2. Email substitute@pisd.edu

    Please email substitute@pisd.edu to indicate your continued interest in substituting. 

    If you are a current/former PISD employee:
    Please indicate your status as a former employee and if you have recently retired through TRS.
    Note: If you have recently retired through TRS (ex. May - June 2020), we will begin the substitute process for you after September 1, 2020.

  • Employment of substitutes is initiated according to the current needs of Plano ISD and the qualifications of the applicant.  The district may give preference to the employment of substitute teachers who hold a valid teaching certificate. 

  • Criminal History Guidelines

    Every person who wishes to serve as a District employee, volunteer, camp counselor, private teacher or contractor, or any other person who will have contact with District students shall have a criminal history search performed. More information

    The 80th Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 9 (SB 9), which mandated the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to acquire criminal history through fingerprint submission on: (1) all certified educators who are currently employed, (2) all substitutes and (3) non-certified employees hired after January 1, 2008. This process requires the individual to hold a state-issued driver's license or state-issued ID card.
