• Substitutes
    The Larkspur-Corte Madera School District uses the Frontline Absence Managment on-line substitute calling system.
    Certificated Substitutes (teachers) - The Marin County Office of Education (MCOE) handles the initial (and annual thereafter) substitute registration for the Marin County school districts. If you are not already registered with MCOE to substitute in the county, please visit the MCOE website. When registering, make sure to list our district "Larkspur-Corte Madera" in your district preferences.

    4. Federal Employment Eligibility Verification (I-9) (print and complete page 1), and

    Classified Substitutes - in addition to certificated (teacher) subs, we are also in need of classified subs. Classified subs have the opportunity to work in a variety of positions; school site secretary, paraprofessional - specialized (work in the special education department), campus support (classroom aide or yard duty), library clerk, and custodial. Classified subs are paid step one of the job classification on the LCMSD salary schedule (the classified salary schedules are pages 5-7).
    To be a classified sub, please complete the Classified Substitute Candidate Application and Questionaire.  If you are hired as a classified sub, you will be asked to have LiveScan fingerprinting done. LiveScan can be done at the sheriff's department or any other vendor offering fingerprinting. Please print, complete and bring the district's LiveScan form with you to your appointment. Once your prints clear, you will be asked to complete the following substitute payroll forms:
    2. State DE-4 Tax Form,
    3. Federal Employment Eligibility Verification (I-9) (print and complete page 1)
    If you are a MCOE registered certificated sub, and NOT a STRS retiree, you may complete a one-page form MCOE Registered Subs Working in a Classified Position Registration to accept subwork in a classified position.
