Sub Week


The OCST invites school districts to recognize their guest teachers during National Sub Week. These five days are dedicated to the approximately 270,000 men and women that fill in for permanent teachers everyday in the United States. Sub Week will be celebrated in conjunction with Teacher Appreciation Week, May 6-10, 2024.

Because of teacher absenteeism, one full year of a child's Pre-K–12 education is taught by substitute teachers. These valued educators fill a void in what can be challenging situations.

Thank you for your help in celebrating the successful substitute teachers making a difference for the staff members and students in your district.
