Edmond Public Schools is always looking for quality substitutes. Individuals who wish to substitute teach must be 21 years of age or have 45 hours of college credit. Substitutes are required to complete annual paperwork, have a cleared criminal history report on file, complete annual tutorials, and complete a yearly training session.

All substitute applications must be completed online!

When available, the online application can be accessed by clicking here:

Once you open the link, type “2020-21 Substitutes” in the search bar and fill in the requested information. First-time applicants will need to create an account while returning applicants will be required to sign in to access the previously-created application for review and updates.


All new subs are required to attend an orientation before they will be cleared to begin working. Once it is confirmed a valid, current clear background check is on file with the Human Resources department, the applicant will be sent an email containing the link to sign up for the substitute orientation.

New for the 2020-21 school year, all returning subs who were active in 2019-20 will be completing their yearly review of critical updates to EPS policies and procedures online, through a link provided in their onboarding online tasks.

All orientations are held at the district headquarters, 1001 W. Danforth, Edmond, OK.  Go to the far south end of the building where the school board meets and there are three large rooms labeled Oklahoma A, B & C.

When available, you may access the current school year’s Substitute Handbook by clicking 20-21 Sub Handbook.
