    Do I need to apply for the 30 day sub permit if I already have my clear credential? On edjoin, this district wants me to attach this document, but I didn't think I need it since I have a clear credential. But, they have made it a requirement. So, I'm confused.

    In Michigan we did not. We had to have a subbing certificate (and pay like $50 per year for it), but the next year (after I graduated) I didn't have to do anything. I wouldn't think they would require a licensed teacher to get a subbing certificate....

    Could you attach your credential to the application instead?

    I'm pretty sure you'll be fine just attaching a copy of your credential.

    If EdJoin is doing that thing where it won't let you proceed if you do not have a document named something specific... Then just make up a document (like a letter in Word then make it a .pdf) that says you have already attached your clear credential.

    Do not apply for a 30 day sub credential. You don't need it.

    No you don't need that 30 day sub permit. I think the 30 day sub permit is for those who don't have their teaching credential and the 30 day sub permit allows that person to sub in "one classroom only" for the same teacher up to 30 days and no more than that.

    You have you teaching credential so that allows you to long term sub (more than 30 days in one class). :rolleyes:

    Peachy, please check with the credentialing people at the county office of education, just to make sure.

    They don't require it here, but I would check with the school district central office to be sure.
