Do you want to make a positive impact on children? Interested in earning extra money while working a flexible schedule? The Midwestern Intermediate Unit IV Guest Teacher Consortium needs you! Become an emergency substitute teacher at the Midwestern Intermediate Unit IV and other participating school districts within the consortium. What you need is the desire to work with children and have a bachelor’s degree in any field from an accredited college or university.
Through MIU IV’s consortium, potential subs will be required to attend a 2 day training session and then apply to the PA Department of Education for an emergency substitute certificate. With certification through MIU IV, substitutes can teach in any school district participating in the consortium. From the training, you will be provided with the skills needed to professionally take part in the rewarding field of education.
Guest Teacher Training
The Guest Teacher Training Program (formerly called the Emergency Substitute Training Program), is endorsed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, 27 school districts in Butler, Lawrence, and Mercer Counties, and the Midwestern Intermediate Unit IV. This program assists you in obtaining an Emergency Permit to serve as a day-to-day substitute in local school districts during the 2020-2021 school year. The intent of this program is to increase the number of available substitutes for our public schools.
In order to qualify for the training program, the candidate must possess a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university. Complete the attached registration form and mail it along with a check or money order made payable to Midwestern Intermediate Unit IV to the attention of Cheryl Pilch, Coordinator of Educational Services, 453 Maple Street, Grove City, PA 16127. Upon receipt of your registration, a packet will be emailed to you. Registrations for this program will be accepted through September 23, 2020.
Due to the uncertainty concerning COVID-19, please be advised that it may be necessary to offer the Guest Teacher Training Program in a virtual format.
