Substitute Teachers

  • Guest Teachers are an important resource for Bismarck Public Schools. They provide our students with the opportunity to continue learning while their teacher is out of the classroom.

    The daily rate of pay for substitute teachers is $140.00 for a full day and $70.00 for a half day.

    The district uses an automated system, Frontline Absence Management (Aesop). This system allows individual guest teachers a great deal of flexibility in setting their schedules and accepting substitute teaching positions. Guest teachers can find and accept jobs by going to the Frontline website, allowing the system to call you with available jobs, or using the Frontline mobile app.

    In order to substitute teach, you must have either a valid North Dakota Teaching License or an Interim Sub License.

    The license can be obtained through the Education Standards and Practices Board.
