San Juan Unified is hiring substitute teachers!

San Juan Unified is looking for dedicated substitute teachers! A dedicated substitute teacher  is a guest teacher at one school site only, but may be asked to substitute at a nearby school on certain days.

If you want to be part of a diverse school district committed to ensuring each student's success by providing innovative instruction in a caring, collaborative environment — we want to meet you.


We have increased our daily salaries for substitute/guest teachers as follows:

  • Regular daily rate: $175/day
  • Dedicated guest teachers: $200/day  
  • Long-term positions: $225/day      


San Juan Unified has also made it easier to become a dedicated substitute teacher. Those interested in working for the district as a substitute can either:

  • Hold a teaching credential based on a degree and student teaching 
  • Apply for an Emergency 30-Day Substitute Teaching Permit and hold a CBEST or work with our HR staff to meet the basic skills required.


If you are interested in being a substitute or guest teacher, you can apply at or call Diana Marshall at (916) 971-7252 for more information.
