Sarasota Schools to hold job fair for substitute teachers October 25

Sarasota County, Florida -- The Sarasota County School District will hold a job fair for prospective substitute teachers on Friday October 25.

Because the need for substitutes is greater at some schools, the district has removed the qualification for substitutes at those schools to have Florida teaching certificates. Applicants who are interested in working at these schools must have a bachelor’s degree and be willing to submit to a background check and drug test, as all district applicants must do. 

The job fair will be from 1-4 p.m., Friday, Oct. 25, at the North Port High School Career Center. District HR specialists will be at the event to assist with the application process and answer any questions.      

If applicants are accepted they will be added to the substitute pool for the designated schools. After two years they will be able to teach as a substitute at any school of their choice in the district. As always, those accepted as substitutes who have Florida teaching certificates will be able to sub at any school in the district. The pay for a substitute teacher with a bachelor’s degree is $115 per day; substitutes with masters’ or higher receive $124 per day.     

The designated schools for substitute teachers with a bachelor’s degree but no Florida teaching certificate are as follows:     

Schools in North Port

  • Atwater Elementary
  • Glenallen Elementary
  • Lamarque Elementary
  • Heron Creek Middle
  • Woodland Middle
  • North Port High

Schools in Venice

  • Venice Middle/ Oak Park South

Schools in Sarasota 

  • Emma E. Booker Elementary 
  • Fruitville Elementary
  • Tuttle Elementary
  • Booker Middle
  • Oak Park School 

The job fair will be from 1-4 p.m., Friday, Oct. 25, at the North Port High School Career Center.    

If applicants cannot attend the job fair, they may apply at www.SarasotaCountySchools.net (click on the Human Resources link on the left of the home page) or at the Human Resources Department at the Landings on U.S. 41/S. Tamiami Trail, just south of Proctor Road in Sarasota.            

Prospective applicants with questions may call the Department at 941-927-9000, ext. 31200.
