New Substitute Employees

Welcome New Substitute Employees

New substitutes must apply through the Applitrack system and be hired as a substitute for District 51.


Once you have been contacted by D51 that you have been hired as a substitute, please complete the following steps:

  1. Complete New Hire Paperwork as soon as possible. Paperwork must be completed prior to being activated as a substitute. Please click on the three links below to complete your new hire paperwork and sign your Substitute Profile Sheet and Agreement prior to your scheduled Substitute Orientation. Many of these forms are designed to be filled out on your computer. By completing them ahead of time and printing them at home, you can significantly reduce the amount of time you spend at Human Resources.
