ESD is recruiting substitutes for our local schools



Substitute teachers are needed in all five school districts served by the Northwest Regional Education Service District, said Elizabeth Friedman. She is the administrator for the Clatsop Service Center that serves Knappa, Astoria, Warrenton, Jewell and Seaside.


Instructional assistants and classified staff are also needed.


The ESD is holding a substitute registration from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13, at the Service Center. 3149 Marine Drive in Astoria.


“Becoming a substitute is a great way for people to explore the field of education to discover if it may be a good fit as a future career,” Friedman said.


The shortage has already been experienced in classrooms this school year. The lack of substitutes may be caused by the improving economy or other districts going to full-day kindergarten, Friedman said.


Those interested in substituting in the schools should register for the event by completing an application at
