Welcome Lyon County Nevada Substitute Teachers!

Lyon County School District (LCSD) relies on qualified, enthusiastic people to fill the important role of a substitute teacher. We also value the unique perspectives that substitutes can bring to the classroom.

LCSD offers increased pay to each substitute/guest teacher when, as part of their onboarding and professional development, they take and pass the substitute teacher training course. Applicants will have four (4) attempts to get an 85% or higher.

The training consists of several courses that cover the fundamental knowledge, skills, techniques, and practices needed to work ethically, effectively, and professionally with all stakeholders in a school community.

What can I expect substitute teaching inLyon County?

  • To work hard. On average, the majority of our substitute teachers work three days per week. More if you’re interested in substitute teaching in Special Education classes. 
  • While you may experience a last minute call here and there, the majority of the time, you can schedule your assignments in advance. Our system allows you to pick and choose your days and assignments. We do appreciate, however, any last minute calls you can take! 
  • To make a difference. Substitute teaching is difficult, but can be rewarding. Giving students a fresh start and a new energy in the classroom is exciting. We have many subs that are regulars in schools and students are eager to see them in their classrooms.
  • Ongoing training. We want our substitute teachers to be top notch and have the skills they need to feel successful. Each year, expect us to provide you with chances to become EVEN BETTER!
