    GISD Substitute Teacher Information

    We appreciate your interest in becoming a Georgetown Independent School District Substitute.  
Senate Bill 9, also known as the "Fingerprinting Bill", was signed into law by Governor Perry in the fall of 2007. This bill requires that all substitutes undergo a national criminal history record information review by the Texas Education Agency (TEA). Therefore, before you can be employed as a substitute in Georgetown ISD, you will be required to fingerprint.

Note: You will be required to pay the fees associated with the fingerprinting process. The cost ranges from $41.00 to $43.00 depending on the method of payment.
