PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Pittsburgh Public Schools is in need of substitute teachers.

The request comes as the district gets ready to return to in-person classes on Nov. 9.

The district will have substitute teachers in each school to help in classrooms, and as a result more are needed.

Right now, there are 425 active subs in the district, with 236 trained and ready to work.

District officials say they prioritize hiring substitutes with a Pennsylvania certification; however, the district also hires substitutes without a certification. Applicants must possess a bachelor’s degree or 60 college credits and participation in the Teacher Prep Program.
