Substitute Teacher Training and Recertification (UPDATED)
Posted On:
Wednesday, July 17, 2019

Newport Grammar School will hold its fall substitute teacher training on Friday, August 9  at 9:00AM in the NGS primary building.

Those interested in becoming certified to substitute at Newport Grammar School will need to attend this training.

Currently certified substitutes will be required to complete recertification yearly.  To do this, two options are available:

1) Review the refresher information at the this link HERE and complete the recertification test.  This option is only available to those currently on the NGS sub list.


2) Attend the fall substitute training on Friday, August 9 in the NGS primary building.  Please contact Justin Norton at 423-613-1897 or to register for the training. 

Additionally, all substitutes that have background checks older than January of 2018 must complete a new background check before being able to continue subbing at NGS.  This is due to a new state law requiring background checks be completed every five years.  Please contact Sheila Pack (423-623-3811 x201) to register for your background check.

Newport Grammar School substitutes must have a background check on file.  All new NGS substitutes will be required to complete this background check prior to subbing for the school.  Current NGS substitutes will NOT have to complete a new background check.  All substitutes must also complete free annual DCS check.  You may contact Christina Leas (423-625-0686)  for more information about background checks.
