West Clermont Local School District
Bylaws & Policies


The Board of Education recognizes the need to procure the services of substitutes in order to continue the operation of the schools as a result of the absence of regular personnel.

The Superintendent shall employ substitutes for assignment as services are required to replace temporarily absent regular staff members and fill new positions. Such assignment of substitutes may be terminated when their services are no longer required.

Substitutes must possess a valid Ohio professional license or substitute license.

Substitutes must complete a DMA form with no positive indications that material assistance has been provided to a terrorist organization before working in the District (see Policy 8120).

Substitutes also must pass a background check performed by the Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (see Policy 3121).

In order to retain well-qualified substitutes for service in this District, the Board will offer competitive compensation at a rate recommended by the Superintendent and approved by the Board.

A substitute employed for more than sixty (60) days in one (1) specific position will be placed at the minimum salary on the current teachers' salary schedule (e.g. BA/0), and will be eligible for fringe benefits provided regular staff members if they are employed for more than ninety (90) days in the same specific position.

Daily substitutes shall not earn sick leave nor be paid for days when students are not required to attend school.
