Intern Substitute Certification
Background: OSPI created the Intern Substitute Certificate to create an opportunity for districts to use student interns in the event their cooperating teacher is out during their student teaching quarter (this makes you eligible to sub ONLY for your cooperating teacher and ONLY during your student teaching quarter). UW Bothell School of Educational Studies will not accept or process the Intern Substitute Certificate before December 11, 2016.
First check with your assigned district human resources director to see if the Intern Subtitute Certificate is approved by your district. Get approval from both your cooperating teacher and building principal- there is no form for this but critical and required.
After getting approval from both cooperating teacher and principal, notify Jon Howeiler of your intent to complete the online forms for the Intern Substitute Certificate on OSPI’s ‘E-Cert’ webpage. On or around the second week of winter quarter at UWB, he will then give approval in the ‘E-Cert’ system in your account in the Communication Log, or Comm Log and notify your school district of the approval on the university’s end.
Candidate completes remaining online forms and pays the state fee for the Intern Substitute Certificate ($44) and completes school district employment paperwork. Once approved by OSPI, school district can verify completion online and/or print out candidate’s Intern Substitute Certificate.
See the E-Certification College Candidate User Guide for more and detailed information.
