Become a Substitute Teacher

At the Helena Public School District, every person on our team contributes to the success of children every day.  If you are interested in assisting in a classroom as a substitute paraeducator or leading a classroom as a substitute teacher, this is the year to apply.   Starting rate is $11.93/hour as a para-educator and $80/day for substitute teacher.


  • Substitute Teacher: Bachelor’s degree and specific endorsement preferred. At least one year of college education is required.
  • Substitute ParaEducator: High school diploma or equivalent; 1 to 3 months experience or training; or an equivalent combination of education, training and experience as determined by the district.

Our system is automated to notify you of substitute opportunities, and you can choose whether to work a full day every day—or intermittently throughout the week – even part time.  Our buildings are open from 7:30am-6pm and our need is variable, so we have a number of flexible opportunities.
