Prairie Central CUSD #8 is in desperate need of substitute teachers! We are working hard to keep kids in school, but need your help to do so. Please consider being a sub this year. This year only, you are not even required to have a sub certificate under certain circumstances, such as a teacher instructing remotely from home while students are in the classroom (this is called a classroom associate). Background checks are still required. Would you consider helping us out? If so, please call the Unit Office at 815-692-2504 for next steps. Please pass this on to anyone you believe might be interested. Pay is $100/day.
