Cape Girardeau Public School District encourages you to apply with our Online Application System for the position listed as "Substitute Application Pool". If you are unable to do this, please call Willetta Brookins (contact information below). After completing an application online a packet will be mailed to your address for you to complete and submit back to us with additional required information.
Computers and a scanner are available at the Central Office of Administration (301 N. Clark) for your use in applying online if needed.
We will accept online applications for Substitute Teachers at any time. To be eligible, Substitute applicants must hold at least 60 college hours.
Substitutes who have 60 college hours and a Missouri Substitute Certificate will receive $75 per full day and $37.50 per half day.
Substitutes who have a Bachelor's degree or Master's degree will receive $85 per full day and $42.50 per half day.
The compensation of substitute teachers is approved annually by the Board. Substitutes will be paid
only for the days they teach. If a substitute teaches continuously in one assignment for 20
consecutive days, and thus begins to assume more nearly full portion of the teaching load, the pay
shall be adjusted to the daily rate of a beginning teacher at the lowest teacher salary schedule level
and shall be made retroactive to the first date the substitute began in the same assignment. (Policy GCE)
Please note that vocational and/or theological coursework hours are no longer acceptable unless approved by DESE.
