    • Teachers/Instructional Aides (Scroll down this page for more information on substitute teaching)
    • Child Nutrition
    • Custodial
    • Maintenance
    • Transportation
    In order to be considered for a substitute position, an online application must be completed with authorization for a criminal history background check. A previous arrest does not automatically prevent someone from being hired. Circumstances, the nature of the offense, and the amount of time passed since the offense occurred are taken into consideration. 
    To apply, visit our Employment/Job Postings site to find the position that interests you.
    Note: In accordance with state legislation SB9 Fingerprinting, all substitutes must be fingerprinted through TEA before they begin employment in a Texas school district. If you have already been fingerprinted by another school district, you are not required to be fingerprinted again. If you have not been fingerprinted by a school district, you will receive fingerprinting instructions after your application has been processed.

    COCISD is an equal-opportunity employer. Applicants for all positions are considered without regard to race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, disability, genetic information, veteran or military status, or any other legally protected status.
