Substitute Teachers

According to research, students that attend Kindergarten through 12th grade will spend the equivalent of one entire school year with a substitute teacher. Therefore, Substitute Teachers are a vital part of the Graves County team in helping make our students successful!

Required Substitute Teacher Training

We strive to ensure Graves County Substitute Teachers are prepared for their job as "teacher." AppGarden helps to provide training for our Substitute Teachers so they have the knowledge and skill to be effective.


Starting in the 2016-2017 school year, all Substitute Teachers must undergo AppGarden training before they can begin work.  There are 2 training options:


Option 1:

The Graves County Schools Effective Teacher Training with Substitute Orientation is a required course for all of the substitutes in Graves County Schools. Substitutes will complete the course prior to being hired.

Option 2:
