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 paperwork before March 13, 2015 for the K-8 program, December 12, 2014 for Secondary.

  1. 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.
