Substitute Teachers

2021-2022 School Year

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year with Huntington Beach City School District.  We hope you had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to returning to the excitement of the classroom.

HBCSD uses the absence reporting/substitute system called AESOP. The current pay schedule for certificated substitutes is $120.00 for a full day; $16.37 per hour for hourly assignments over three hours; the minimum rate for three hours or less is $49.11. Temporarily through December 31, 2021, the certificated substitute teacher's daily rate of pay will be increased from $120.00 to $135.00.


  • Credentials/permits should be renewed at least two months in advance of the expiration date. All renewals of credentials and/or permits must be completed online on the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing Website.
  • If there is a lapse in your credential/permit, Aesop will notify you, and you will be unable to substitute teach until we are notified by you that the credential/permit has been renewed and is visible on the CTC (Commission on Teacher Credentialing) website.  Additionally, the system will not allow you to accept or to be pre-arranged for an assignment beyond the date your credential expires.  Also, please keep our office informed of any changes in your status (i.e. name change, address, phone number) as they occur throughout the year.
  • It is imperative that you report to your assignment 30 minutes prior to the start time shown on the enclosed schedule.  (AESOP will state the time you are to report.)  You are to remain on campus until all students are dismissed unless you are on an hourly assignment.

Thank you for your continued support and service.  You are a very important part of our educational programs.  With your dedication and professionalism, the planned curricula are ongoing in the absence of classroom teachers. Your effort is appreciated.
