For many schools, not just Firestone Charter Academy, COVID-19 has created staffing issues. For various reasons staff may need help covering their classes (sick days, waiting on COVID-19 test results, quarantine, etc). For those of us who really want/need the kids to be learning in person there is a way some of us can step up and help fill this need: substitute teaching. Obviously not everyone is in a position to help, but some of us are.
Typically the process of becoming a substitute teacher can be quite involved. However, due to the overwhelming need for substitute teachers the Colorado Department of Education has created a special 2020-2021 Substitute Authorization which is quicker and has a shorter turn around time. You will need to submit fingerprints and an application for this authorization as well as be able to confirm completion of high school or its equivalent (there is an out of pocket fee for both fingerprinting and the application).
What better way to support our FCA staff through this pandemic than getting into the trenches alongside them and working together to pull our community through this.
For more information on how to become a substitute teacher go to this link:
