APPLICATION PROCEDURE: Applications are accepted when there is a need to grow our substitute pool.
To have your name placed on our substitute teacher's list, you must successfully pass a pre-employment substance abuse screening before employment. A criminal history records check through the Washington State Patrol/FBI must also be conducted pursuant to RCW 28A.400. It will be the substitute teacher's responsibility for payment of fingerprinting and substance abuse screening costs. Please contact Human Resources for fee amounts. (509) 972-6015 You will need to also complete all other required HR paperwork.
PROCEDURE FOR ASSIGNING SUBSTITUTES:
We utilize an internet based substitute assignment system - AESOP. This enables the teacher to submit their absence online, and it also enables the substitutes to access the available jobs in the same manner. Substitutes don't need to wait for a phone call, they are free to accept any assignment they would like to. It is a system which greatly streamlines the substitute assignment procedure. There will be automated phone calls made by AESOP, the night before or the morning of an absence. After you as a substitute, complete the necessary paperwork and clearances, your name will be placed into AESOP, with a username and password. This will give you the ability to immediately begin to accept assignments.
EMERGENCY SCHOOL CLOSURE:
In the event of a school closure or delayed start time in West Valley School District due to in-clement weather and/or conditions, the closure or delay will be announced on the local radio or television stations. A Flash Alert will also be issued via email and app. The district voicemail system will also provide accurate information regarding such closure/delays at 972-6002.
Be sure to report directly to the office upon arrival to any school.
