Teacher substitutes with a valid Montana teaching certificate receive $77 a day and non-certified substitute teachers are paid $72 daily. Support staff substitutes are paid an hourly rate of $9.00. This is an excellent way to supplement your income.
All substitutes must complete the necessary application and employment forms. A fingerprint background check is required for all applicants. Substitutes must bring in proof of a recent TB test.
Any employee or volunteer seeking assignment at Lockwood School must have this form which authorizes a complete background investigation. This is necessary to protect the safety and welfare of the children in the Lockwood School District. The fingerprint card and a check for $27.25 is needed for processing.
Fingerprints are now required with background checks.
Background Check Fingerprinting Process
Applicant will have fingerprinting done. Electronic fingerprinting can be done on
the Lockwood School Campus in the Administration Building. A check or money
order made payable to Lockwood Schools for $40.00 is due at the time of service.
Call Melissa at 252-6022 x4 to set up a time to come in.
If you are unable to come to the Lockwood Campus, 2 fingerprint cards
(recommended by DOJ) can be submitted along with a check or money order for
$30.00 (as of March 1, 2019) made payable to Montana Criminal Records will be
sent by Lockwood Schools to Montana Criminal Records in Helena. This is the
fee the Department of Justice charges for processing your fingerprints.
Under the laws the report sent to the district may be shared with other districts or
entities with the signature of the individual.
If the applicant has already undergone the fingerprinting process the Request for
Redissemination form must be filled out and signed by the applicant. Please
indicate to where the request should be sent for a copy of your fingerprint
background check report. Lockwood School Board Policy requires that a
fingerprint background check report be on file in the Administration Office before
an applicant can begin employment. The results must be no more than 3 years old
from the date of the request.
