Substitute in NKC Schools

Inspire students, support success and choose your own schedule.

Substitutes play a vital role in providing quality education to our children. Whether you’re a parent who needs flexibility, a college student looking for experience, or just someone who enjoys making a difference, substitute teaching is a rewarding opportunity.

Substitute teachers are an essential part of our team throughout North Kansas City Schools. By stepping in when our staff members are unavailable, substitutes keep the learning going and encourage student success. You can substitute in a variety of roles, from classroom teacher to one-on-one support paraprofessional.
