Sub Teacher (non-certified) Pay: $70.00/Day

Sub Teacher (MA certified) Pay: $75.00/Day

Retired Teacher Pay: $80.00/Day  


You may be a Substitute ESP if you have a high school diploma.

Sub ESP Pay: $9.75/Hour for 6.5 hours each day.


We have switched to an application process exclusively through the website SchoolSpring. Please apply on this website to be considered for any openings. 

Please be aware that it can take some time after you apply before your application is reviewed. If you have any additional questions, please call the Superintendent's Office at (413) 587-1331. 

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is instituting a new Criminal record law which will require you to submit to a fingerprint background check for any work in any public school. This check may cost you a fee. The state has not yet provided instructions on how to assist you in getting this check. At the present time, you will need to undergo our current CORI check by providing us with a copy of your license and a signed form, which is free.
