Substitute Teachers

Substitute Teachers

Thomasville City Schools substitute teachers are an important part of our educating children.  When teachers are out of the classroom due to professional growth and development or other factors, our students deserve the continuity of instruction.  Our substitutes carry on that instruction as the teacher.
Currently, substitute teachers must have the following requirements:
You must have at least a high school diploma. Forty-eight (48) semester hours of post high school work is preferred; however, it is not required.  A transcript must be provided and completion of the App-Garden University virtual course. 
Beginning April 20, 2018...
We are very excited to offer new training for all of our Substitute Teachers in Thomasville City Schools. This will be mandatory training in order to be an approved sub for the 2018-2019 school year. 


The VIRTUAL training is offered by the App-Garden University. There are many benefits to you as a sub such as the ability to train anytime and anywhere you have access to internet. It is so important that we as a district keep you current on the board policies and procedures as well as giving you great tips and ideas for being a successful substitute teacher. This training is required of all subs in order for our district to meet compliance requirements.
