About Substitute Employment

Summit ESC is proud to partner with Renhill Group to provide substitute teachers, paraprofessionals, aides and attendants for our partner districts and ESC programs. All substitutes will be hired by Renhill Group, however all onboarding will take place at Summit ESC.

As a service to the school districts in Summit County, the Summit Educational Service Center (ESC) onboards substitute teachers, paraprofessionals, aides and attendants who have completed the required training and application process. Those chosen to sub in districts that are not part of our Renhill Group partnerships will be required to fill out the necessary paperwork to become a substitute in said district. Summit ESC simply vets substitutes for those districts.

To be included on either substitute list, every individual who is new to substituting through the Summit ESC must meet several requirements in the completion of the application process, regardless of experience and licensure type.
