“We realize the need for subs now more than ever. This is a tremendous opportunity to recruit individuals who want a chance to work a flexible schedule but also make a difference in a student’s life,” said Dr. Walter Gonsoulin, Superintendent.

Like many districts, Jefferson County Schools currently contracts with Kelly Services to provide substitutes in various departments.
