Substitute Teaching at Merkel ISD
PLEASE NOTE: Our policies regarding substitute teachers have changed significantly beginning with the 2014-15 school year. The new guidelines also apply to those who have worked previously.


What's needed to become a sub at MISD?
To be included on the sub list for any MISD school, you must complete the following tasks. (this may involve multiple trips to the MISD Central Office):
  1. Complete the hiring process (application / hiring / fingerprinting)
  2. Attend in-person orientation
  3. Complete paperwork


1) The hiring process

To get started, you must first be hired. Applications are available at the Employment Opportunities section of the MISD web site. Once your application is approved, you will be contacted regarding fingerprinting.
NOTE: If you have previously been hired and fingerprinted, you do NOT need to repeat this step.

2) Orientation

After being hired and fingerprinted, you MUST attend an in-person orientation session. These sessions are held at least twice a year. Please contact the superintendent's secretary for information on when the sessions will be held.
ALL SUBS will need to attend orientation, including those who have previously worked at MISD.

3) Sign paperwork

You will need to read and sign a copy of the MISD Substitute Handbook, and the Responsible Use Guidelines for technology. This should be done annually. Those who have previously subbed WILL need to sign these forms each year.


Contact information for the Superintendent's secretary can be found here.
Our Mission
The mission of the Merkel Independent School district is to provide, to the full extent of their individual abilities, all students with the skills of logical, independent, and creative thinking, and effective communication.  Further, as a result of instruction in our schools, students will acquire a knowledge and appreciation of our citizenship responsibilities, of our economic responsibilities, and of our American heritage.  In our schools, learning will occur in an environment of moral values and character, and these characteristics will be communicated to all students.  The accomplishment of this mission will be characterized by equity, efficiency, and accountability.
