Training Workshops

The Newton County School System (NCSS) will offer FREE substitute teacher training
sessions. Sessions will be held via Zoom from 9:00 AM until 12:00 PM. In addition,
NCSS will continue to accept candidates who complete training through Griffin Regional
Educational Service Agency (RESA), located in Griffin, Georgia. Those interested in attending
the Griffin RESA training session must call 770-229-3247 to register and pay a $40.00 registration fee.

Candidates interested in substitute teaching in Newton County, who do not hold a Georgia
teaching certificate or are not eligible for a Georgia teaching certificate, must attend either
the NCSS OR Griffin RESA training session (only one is required). Upon successful completion of the training session, candidates will receive a certificate of completion. The certificate of completion is required for NCSS to add candidates to the substitute teacher roster.
