The Newton County School System no longer offers substitute teacher training sessions. These sessions will be offered through Griffin Regional Educational Service Agency (RESA), located in Griffin, GA.

Candidates interested in substitute teaching in Newton County will need to attend one of the half-day sessions held at Griffin RESA. Upon completion of this session, each candidate will receive a certificate. This certificate is required in order for a candidate to be eligible for the substitute teacher roster with NCSS.


Those interested in attending must contact Griffin RESA at 770-229-3247 to register.

See flyer for dates and additional information regarding the substitute training workshops.


If you have a teaching certificate and are not under contract, contact the Human Resources Department to inquire about long-term substitute teaching vacancies and eligibility. If you already have a teaching certificate, you will not be required to complete the substitute training workshop.
