Substitutes during a training session at the Administration Building

We love our subs! Our substitutes are an integral part of our District and we could not be successful without them. We value their service, as they contribute to student achievement through their commitment to quality education.

Application Information

The Francis Howell School District needs talented individuals to work with our students. We offer flexible hours, a supportive working environment, and competitive wages.
