I worked at Santa Cruz County Office of Education part-time (More than a year)
A very organized and friendly way to begin substitute teaching. Little to no obligation as far as daily work scheduling, and the pay is reasonable for substitute teaching; working daily is definitely livable.
Long-term positions only come with time and individual networking through schools; very rare to have a longer position. If you don't schedule shifts soon enough, they can be difficult to find on occasional days. I would go a week without working due to shortages of shifts or them being taken quickly.
Advice to Management
Possibly consider screening subs further, as there is little to no interview process.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Santa Cruz County Office of Education (Salinas, CA) in August 2016.
I had worked with the Assistant Superintendent when he was employed in another county, so he was familiar with my work already. He asked if I would be willing to work with him at his new job and I agreed.
