Frequently Asked Questions
Before being hired:
I SUBMITTED MY APPLICATION, WHY HAVE I NOT HEARD ANYTHING BACK?
- you have not attached your official transcripts
- you did not go to jobs to apply for a position
- you have not completed a digital interview
Please make sure you have accomplished these three things to prevent any delays.
I DO NOT HAVE AN OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT, CAN YOU TAKE SOMETHING ELSE?
We would prefer for you to have it sent to you so you can add to your application, but if you cannot attach it you can email it to email@example.com and we can help.
If you are a retired AISD employee, you can attach a document that states you are retired from AISD, and we will look up your transcripts.
I WAS A SUBSTITUTE BEFORE BUT RESIGNED, CAN YOU JUST REINSTATE MY POSITION?
I AM A SUBSTITUTE FOR ANOTHER DISTRICT, DO I HAVE TO ATTEND ORIENTATION?
After Being Hired:
I RECENTLY RECEIVED MY BACHELOR’S DEGREE (OR 45 COLLEGE HOURS), WHEN WILL MY PAY INCREASE?
Please Note: if you recently graduated, we must see that your degree is conferred on your transcripts. It typically takes colleges 3-5 weeks to update the system to reflect this on your transcripts.
I AM TRYING TO LOGIN BUT DO NOT KNOW MY PASSWORD AND IT TELLS ME TO CONTACT MY ADMINISTRATOR.
I KEEP TRYING TO LOGIN TO TEAMS/FRONTLINE, BUT THE SYSTEM TELLS ME TO CONTACT AN ADMINISTRATOR.

You may qualify to be a Bridge Substitute. Please refer to that page.
I AM A TEXAS CERTIFIED TEACHER, BUT I AM NOT RECEIVING THE LONG-TERM PAY.
If a campus does not send this form, the system does not automatically award long-term pay.
I AM A DEGREED PROFESSIONAL SUBSTITUTE, DO I STILL MAKE $80/DAY WHEN I WORK AS A CLASSROOM ASSISTANT OR CLERK ASSIGNMENT?
HOW MUCH DO I MAKE WHEN I WORK A HALF-DAY ASSIGNMENT?
If a Degreed/Non-Degreed Professional Substitute works less than four and one half (4 1⁄2) hours, the substitute will qualify for one-half day’s pay (reminder – 30 minutes lunch is deducted). Principal/designee will make the determination.
THERE IS AN ASSIGNMENT FOR A DAY STUDENTS ARE NOT IN CLASS, CAN I PICK IT UP?
There could be some exceptions, but this will be discussed beforehand and not a single day assignment.
I WORKED AT A CAMPUS BUT DO NOT SEE IT IN MY JOB HISTORY.
You can send them an email and add substitute office to this so that we can help if needed.
