A routine SLED background check and National Sex Offender Registry will be conducted by our office.


You will be notified if you meet the qualifications to substitute in Florence School District Three. You will also be notified of the date and time of the mandatory Substitute training class. Failure to attend this mandatory training class will result in your ineligibility to substitute.

Please Note:

Serving as a substitute in Florence School District Three is a privilege and not a right.

Substitutes work on an as needed basis to meet the needs of the District.
