Substitute Teacher  Requirement

We employ highly qualified, engaged professionals and staff, and recognize them as individuals with both personal and career goals. We strive to build personal bonds with our candidates and truly understand where they would like their career to lead and how we can help them achieve their goals.

  • Substitute teachers must meet the Michigan Department of Education Regulations. Although showing proof of a valid teaching certificate is preferred, a person may be qualified for the position if they possess a Substitute Permit. This permit allows a person who does not hold a valid Michigan teaching certificate to be employed as a guest teacher on a day to day basis when the regular teacher is absent.
  • Sixty (60) semester hours or more of credit from an accredited college or University and must be completed to qualify for a permit. The $45.00 permit fee that goes to the State of Michigan is the responsibility of the applicant. This permit must be renewed every year.
  • Transcripts of college credit of 90 or more hours with no lower than a 2.0 are required and  credits must be  on one transcript.
  • Upon earning a Michigan Teaching Certificate, you can submit a copy to Superior Employment Services to omit future permit fees.

Individuals who work in food services, cafeteria or playground supervisors, non-instructional computer assistance and similar positions are not impacted by the legislation (
