COCISD Substitute Employment

  • COCISD has substitute positions available in the following areas:

    • Teachers/Instructional Aides

    • Child Nutrition

    • Custodial

    • Maintenance

    • Transportation

    In order to be considered for a 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.

These sessions are held twice a year, one in the fall and one in the spring. The next training will be on Tuesday, January 14, 2020, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Jones Educational Complex located at 125 FM 1514 in Coldspring. Refreshments will be provided.

    2. A copy of your driver's license and social security card.
    3. A copy of your proof of education such as a GED, High School diploma, or college transcripts.

    The WillSub system will manage all substitute assignments. All calls to substitutes will be made through this system from 5:30 a.m. – 7:15 a.m. and/or 5 p.m. – 9 p.m. Substitutes may accept or decline offers. The WillSub system allows substitutes to designate preferred days, grade levels, or subjects, but with fewer restrictions a substitute may expect more frequent assignments. WillSub will not function with answering machines. Repeated attempts will be made to contact substitutes until the job is filled. Job shopping through WillSub allows substitutes to look for available jobs via the Internet. All WillSub user names and passwords are confidential and should not be shared with anyone else. Shared passwords could result in missed work opportunities and/or errors in payroll.
