Substitute Teachers Wanted

Park City School District is experiencing a substitute teacher shortage. If you have teaching experience, are a retired educator, if you have a strong background in Math, Science, Art, Music, or other academic areas, if you are a bilingual French or Spanish, if you’ve worked successfully with children and youth, we need your help.

Substitutes can choose which subject areas and grade levels to teach. As well, you can choose the days of the week you want to work. Licensed substitutes are paid $ 95 per day, non-licensed receive $85 per day. Long-term subs rates (15 days consecutive) earn $110 for licensed and $100 for non-licensed.

We are also in need of substitutes for paraprofessional positions, which are typically instructional assistants that support teaching reading or work with special education students or with students learning English. Instructional assistants are paid $75 per day.

Please contact Theresa Eason regarding the application process. Sub Applications are accessible on the Park City School District Website at:

Since we met Tuesday, January 20th, at Ecker Middle School for our DLI K orientation, we will not hold another meeting the week of January 26 - 30. Registration forms for next year's DLI first grade classes are online now through February 13th at 4:00 pm. Questions may be addressed to Dr. Einhorn via email --keinhorn@pcschools.us -- or by telephone at 435-645-5600 x1422.

Application Steps

1. If you missed the parent information meeting on January 20, 2015, please read the information on the PCSD website under the Dual Language Immersion section from the link Information Night.
2. Submit an Open Enrollment Form to the district if your child and siblings wish to attend the school from out of the Park City School District boundaries by 4:00 p.m. February 13, 2015 (Open Enrollment Form available at any Park City School District building).
3. You will be notified by mail by March 13, 2015. If you do not receive notification by this date, please call Cindy Hair at 435-645-5600 ext 1420.
4. If your child is selected for the Dual Language Immersion Program, return the Parent Commitment Form to the district office by March 27, 2015.
5. If you choose to fill-out a paper copy of this application INSTEAD of an electronic copy, return the application to the district office no later than 4:00 p.m. on February 13, 2015.

Placement Conditions
1. This application does not guarantee enrollment in the program. Students will be selected by lottery for the program as indicated on the Park City School District web site.
2. If the child is selected to attend the dual immersion program, it is the responsibility of the parents to provide transportation for the student to and from the school unless the child lives within the school boundaries and is deemed eligible to ride the bus.
3. Research indicates an immersion program is most effective when students remain in the program for a sustained period of time. The student will be expected to continue with the program through 5th grade at the same school. Students are expected to continue in the program at the secondary level.
4. Participation in a dual language immersion program is considered to be a comprehensive educational experience. Beginning in the first grade, paired English and target language teachers collaborate to support student mastery of both the core content standards and target language skills in a full day program. It is our expectation that students who participate in the language immersion experience participate fully in the school academic day.

School Closures, Delayed Start, Early Release

Park City School District schools will be open on all regularly scheduled school days unless circumstances create health or safety issues. We fully expect our schools to be open and functioning normally throughout the winter, but weather conditions can vary greatly in different neighborhoods and on different streets. We encourage parents to make attendance decisions for their children based on their specific ability to get to school safely.

Additionally, if your contact information has recently changed, please contact your local school with current information. This will enable the school and/or the district to notify you in the event of a late start, closure, or early release.

Again, we fully expect our schools to be open, but we will notify parents if that changes. If you hear nothing, you can safely assume your school is open. If you are concerned about your child’s ability to safely travel to school, please exercise your parental discretion to make the decision that is best for your family.

If severe weather conditions or other events force a school closure, delayed start, or early release, the following procedures will be implemented.

Announcements:
We will notify parents via the local news media, the district website, social media sites, and possibly email, text, or phone in the event of a delayed start, early release, or closure. If you hear nothing, you can assume your school is open. Parents and employees should listen to local news media outlets for information. Authorization will come from the superintendent or his/her designee.

Length:
All school closures, delayed starts, or early releases are for one day only.

Normal Operation:
No announcement means schools are open and regular schedules will be followed.

Emergency Plan:
Parents are encouraged to create an emergency plan for their students. Parents should plan with their students where to go or what to do if a parent is not home and schools are closed, delayed, or dismissed early. In the event of an early release, elementary and middle school students will be held at school until parents or guardians are notified and arrangements are made to keep the students safe.
