SPOTSWOOD, NJ - The Spotswood School District's four schools will begin implementing the hybrid model of instruction combining two-half days a week of in-person learning and one virtual day of learning for all students on October 26. In preparation, Spotswood School District Superintendent Graham Peabody put the call out to Chargers' alumni who may be attending college virtually from home this week to apply for part-time work as substitutes as well as others in the community who may be interested.

In order to qualify for being a substitute, an applicant must have completed 60 college course credits. Course credits do not need to be in education. The Spotswood School District is also seeking part-time positions for paraprofessionals and student safety officers. These positions do not require college credit completion.

Interested applicants should contact Kathy Bonczek for additional information about the substitute application and certification process. Bonczek can be reached by emailing kbonczek@spsd.us or by telephone at 732-723-2200 extension 5030.
