Waking and Replacing

The Manhattan Beach Unified School District has around 150 substitute teachers ready to fill in for teacher absences. These substitute teachers are called on a day-to-day basis to take over when a teacher can not make it. Not anyone can become a substitute, however, as they must have certain credentials and meet specific qualifications.

The state requires teachers to have a valid teaching or temporary substitute teaching credential. In addition, job postings listed by MBUSD require:

  • Copy of Transcript (College Transcripts)
  • Credential Copy (Valid California Teaching Credential or Emergency 30-Day Substitute Permit)
  • Letter of Introduction
  • Letter(s) of Recommendation (3 Recent Copies – within the past 2 years)
  • Resume (Recent)
  • Test Results/Materials (CBEST, CSET, or other exam to satisfy the Basic Skills Requirement

Additional requirements are needed in order for a long-term substitute teacher. For job listings and more information, you can visit the MBUSD website.
