    Effective December 2019: Once an applicant has applied, the HR team will invite qualified applicants to an interview. After the applicant has been interviewed and offered a Substitute position the applicant will be instructed to complete a background check with the PCR3 4-digit number. Substitute Teacher applicants require a Substitute or Teaching certification. Once the background check has cleared and certification is obtained the applicant will be invited to onboard.

Per Board policy GBEBC: applicants for employment are responsible for the cost of the criminal background check.
