In order to substitute teach, you must hold a valid WV Substitute Teaching permit. Kanawha County Schools only accepts those substitute permits in areas of critical need if recommended by the Human Resources Department. The WVDE grants substitute permits for individuals who hold a bachelor's (college) degree not in education and has been recommended by a county school system. You must participate in the substitute permit program and complete the required substitute training program prior to the issuance of the initial substitute permit. Kanawha County offers this training when there is a need and will post this on the KCS website.
