“I began as a substitute teacher at CSDB. Twenty seven years later it’s still a terrific challenge for my teaching skills and the support allows me to stretch my vision for myself and my students.”

Interested persons are invited to follow the above link(s) to submit a State of Colorado Application. Please follow instructions contained in the official job announcement to apply online.

A temporary employee pays state, federal and local (if applicable) taxes, Medicare tax, and contributes to the Colorado Public Employees’ Retirement Association (PERA). They also receive Workers’ Compensation coverage. A temporary employee does not receive health/dental/life insurance benefits and does not receive sick/annual/holiday or any other leave benefits. Temporary employees are called to work on an “as-needed” basis; there are no set hours or guarantee of hours.

Substitute Teacher: Employment as a Substitute Teacher requires a Colorado Educator License or Substitute Authorization. Since CSDB is an accredited school, all our faculty members need to hold (or be eligible for) an appropriate license or authorization. For further information regarding licensure, please visit the website for the  Colorado Department of Education – Educator Licensing / Services.

Temporary Aide: Beginning January 1, 2013 a change to the State Personnel Rules states that a Temporary Aide is limited to working nine (9) calendar months in a 12-month period. In addition, for a part-time temporary employee, one day worked during a month will constitute a full month worked. After that time, a temporary aide must wait four (4) months before they may work again as a temporary employee for the State of Colorado.
