Substitute Teacher 


Thank you for your interest in substituting for Brunswick County Schools. The process for being approved to substitute is outlined below.


You must currently hold or have previously held a teaching license to be recommended as a substitute teacher for Brunswick County Schools.




If you hold a current or expired teaching license (in North Carolina or another state), please follow this process:

  1. Contact the school where you are interested in becoming a substitute teacher. Indicate  that you have applied to be a substitute teacher and would like to request an interview with the principal.
  2. Please take a copy of your teaching license, driver's license and social security card with you to the interview.
  3. Following the interview, if the principal would like to recommend you, they will send the appropriate paperwork to the Human Resources department. 
  4. Human Resources will contact you via email.





$103.00 /day - for certified substitute teachers with a current license

$80.00 /day - for substitutes whose teaching license is not current


When filling an interim position, fully certified teachers can possibly receive full teacher salary, depending on the type of leave used by the teacher they are replacing.


Substitutes are paid monthly on the normal pay date for the school. Checks are direct deposited into your bank account.
