Permit Substitute Teachers
The Permit Substitute Teacher license can be applied for if you have…
• A 4-year degree
• An interest in working with students in a classroom setting
To assist you in applying for a Substitute Permit license, please follow the steps provided below:
COMPLETE the PI-1622 District Request for Short-Term Substitute Permit. This form is available on our website under Substitute Teaching documents or you may pick up a copy at the Fond du Lac School District. Administration Center, 72 W. 9th Street. PI-1622 forms may already be signed by Sharon Simon, however, if not, please come to the Administration Center – Human Resources department so that you can have the form signed before it can be scanned and uploaded to the Educator Licensing Online system.
GO TO the www.dpi.state.wi.us Under the Schools & Educators drop-down menu, select Educator Licensing Online. Click on the ! (exclamation point) for Substitute and Emergency licenses. At the next screen, scroll to “District-requested Short-term (3-year) Substitute Permit” and select the appropriate option.
FOLLOW the directions listed under Application Process.
Note: You will get redirected to the WAMS website because you need to create a WAMS account. Follow the instructions to register a new WAMS account. (Make note of your username and password.) After creating the account, return to the ELO website.
PLAN to attend a Substitute Teacher Certification Training program. They provide some options on the DPI website: Team Educators, CESA 1 and CESA 9. (The WEAC Professional Development Academy is also listed, however, that page no longer exists.) The Fond du Lac School District will be working to create a training program, however, it is still under development.
SCAN the PI-1622, the transcripts documenting your Bachelor’s degree, and the training certificate. Make sure the PDF files are less than 2 MB in size each and save the files so that they are readily available for uploading into ELO during the application process.
After this part of the process is completed, obtain a Substitute Teaching packet available at the Administration Center reception area, 72 W. 9th Street, or it can be mailed to you by calling Gloria Schmidt, Substitute Coordinator, 906-6569.
