Perhaps you have been following news about the shortage of teachers across the country and wondered how you can make a difference. Substitute teachers play an important role in providing continuous educational support to students. Across our district, there are many opportunities to serve.Since 2015, ASD has partnered with Substitute Teacher Service, Inc. (STS) as its primary source of qualified staff to fill teacher vacancies across the district.  To learn how you can make a difference, or to register as a substitute teacher, or call (800) 357-SUBS (7827) today. Visit the STS website to view specific substitute teaching opportunities.
The shortage of teachers has created an opportunity for retired educators to return to service without jeopardizing their retirement benefits.  As of this year, retired educators can return to service as ASD employees.  If you are a retired educator and want to learn more about returning to service as a substitute teacher and as an ASD employee, contact Human Resources at (484) 765-4128, or send a message to
