SUBSTITUTE TEACHER CONFERENCE 2018 – Monday, June 18 – sign-up today!

Dear Valued Substitute Teacher,

As the school year comes to end, MCPS wants to offer all substitutes teachers an opportunity to attend the Substitute Teacher Conference on Monday, June 18, 2018 from 8:00 a.m.- 3:00 p.m at CTI. This is a great opportunity for you to learn new information and refresh your skills to prepare for next school year.

The Substitute Teacher Conference is a professional development opportunity available to all substitute teachers.  During this all day training, you will receive training and learn more about topics that apply directly to your work with students.  Topics for the day include:

  • Cultural proficiency
  • Safety and security
  • Classroom Technology
  • My MCPS Classroom
  • Special education.

You are eligible to be paid for your attendance at the Substitute Teacher Conference if you were hired before April 1, 2018 and worked at least 105 hours the previous school year or if you were hired after April 1, 2018, you will receive compensation regardless of the number of hours worked.  Only eligible substitute teachers will receive full short-term pay, $127.61.  If you hold a valid Maryland Professional eligibility certificate, the rate of pay will be $135.04. You must attend the conference for the entire day to receive compensation.

All participants must register by June 14th in Professional Development Online. Onsite registration will not be available.
