We are here to assist you, answer your questions and help with any employment concerns you may have.
If you are interested in becoming a substitute teacher or substitute paraprofessional in our district, please complete an online application then contact Donna Gallo in our Human Resources Department at 203-255-8462. The minimum requirement for a substitute teacher is a Bachelor’s Degree. The minimum requirement for a substitute paraprofessional is an Associate’s Degree or 60 college credits or a passing score on the ParaPro assessment.
The Fairfield Public Schools uses AESOP for our absence management system. Once you have been accepted as a substitute in our district, you will be entered into AESOP, given a pin number and will be able to set up your account on AESOP to receive notices of absences in our district.
In order to be considered for a student teaching, internship or practicum placement in our district, please contact Cynthia Leighton in our Human Resources Department at 203-255-8462.
