Thank you for your interest in the Rolla Public Schools! Please refer to our webpage entitled "Application & Procedures" for more information regarding our application, interviewing and hiring procedures.


As of January 1, 2005, all new hires (certificated, support staff and all substitute positions) must submit to a fingerprint background check through the Missouri Highway Patrol. Employment cannot begin until the District is in receipt of valid written clearance results. For complete information on this mandatory process, please refer to the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education's Fingerprinting/Background Check webpage.

Also located on this webpage is a link to Fingerprint Submittal Applicant's Privacy Rights, as all applicants who are the subject of a national fingerprint-based criminal history record check for a noncriminal justice purpose have certain rights.


Applicants who wish to apply for a certificated position must possess certification for the position in which they are interested.


Applicants who want to apply for a support staff position may need to meet specific requirements for education, experience or professional credentials depending on the type of position in which they are interested.

Please contact Human Resources should you have questions regarding our application / hiring procedures.


Thank you for your interest in becoming a substitute teacher for our District. Click on the following link to access our district substitute teacher handbook which contains pertinent information regarding the process to be added to our substitute teacher list (current substitute teacher handbook). The handbook is available online but district payroll paperwork forms are only available as hard copies that are included with the hard copy version of the handbook. The handbook packet can be picked up at the Rolla Public Schools administration office located on the 2nd floor at 500A Forum Drive.

The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education website also has important information regarding the process (http://dese.mo.gov/eq/cert/CertHelpGuide.html). If you have a regular Missouri teaching certificate, you will not need a separate substitute teaching certificate but you will need a fingerprint background check that is less than one year old.

The substitute teacher list is revised on an ongoing basis throughout the school year. If you have questions, please contact Stacey Roberts at 573-458-0101 ext. 11101 or sroberts(at)rolla.k12.mo.us
