Pre-Application: Instructions for Substitute Teacher Applicants
The Fort Worth ISD has instituted the Substitute Teacher Training Program designed by Utah State University Substitute Teaching Institute and delivered by STEDI.org. This training program is a required part of the substitute induction process for non-certified substitutes.
The process begins with training in classroom management, teaching strategies, planning, and other instructional skills and procedures. Non-certified substitutes are required to complete SubOrientation™ and SubSkills™ training and pass the SubAssessment™. You must complete the online assessment at 75% or greater within six weeks of employment. Applicants with proof of certification, who possess a valid State teaching certificate or substitute teacher certification may waive the SubOrientation™ and SubSkills™ training.
All substitute teacher applicants who are required to take the training will be charged by STEDI.org $39.95 for the cost of training. Payments may be made online by credit card, check, or money order.
The training fee provides applicants online access for one year to:
The 25 minute SubOrientation™ video.
SubSkills™ training material
A variety of downloadable forms, reports, and over 75 activities that can be used in the classroom.
The online SubAssessment™ which is designed to “assess” or evaluate how well the SubSkills™ material has been mastered.
The training may only be taken over the Internet and includes 6-10 hours of interactive SubOrientation™ and SubSkills ™ training. If you prefer not to study at a computer, you may purchase a handbook for an additional $19.95. It takes an average of thirty minutes to complete each of the five Sub Assessment™ sections. Candidates may take each section of the SubAssessment™ a maximum of four times, to obtain a passing score of at least 75%.
The SubOrientation™ and SubSkills Training™ is available at: www.STEDI.org.
Once training is complete, substitutes should print or save a copy of their SubDiploma™ for their records.
