Substitute Teaching the VCU Way
Thank you for your interest in the Substitute Teaching the VCU Way program. The VCU SOE Office of Strategic Engagement has partnered with several local school divisions to recommend placement of our VCU students as substitutes.

Step 1: VCU Screening Application
Complete this VCU SOE online screening application.

Step 2: Referral to Local School Divisions
After review of your screening application, VCU staff will contact you to share next steps. This will likely include submission of you online application to the school divisions of choice and recommending you to school division contacts.

Step 3: Training and Onboarding
Training will be completed by school division personnel as a part of the onboarding process. Students may begin to substitute as soon as they have been processed by the school divisions. VCU will also offer additional training to support student substitutes.

Please contact Dr. Cassandra Stanley at with any questions or concerns.
