Substitute License Options
Colorado issues three types of substitute authorizations -- 1-year authorization, 3-year authorization and 5-year authorization -- based on your educational background and experience, which allow you to work in this capacity in a Colorado public school district, BOCES or charter school. All substitute authorizations are valid for serving in K-12 classrooms yet are issued without a specific content or endorsement area.
5-Year Substitute Authorization
-A 5-year substitute authorization requires you to hold a current or expired Colorado teacher license/certificate or a current out-of-state teacher license/certificate and have a current fingerprint-based background on file with CDE. During the application process, you will be required to upload a copy of the teacher license. Alternative or provisional teacher, special services provider, principal, and administrator licenses and CTE and substitute authorizations do not qualify; it must be a full teacher license.
Once issued, the authorization is valid in all Colorado school districts, BOCES, charter schools and approved facility schools.
3-Year Substitute Authorization
-A 3-year substitute authorization requires you to hold an earned bachelor's or higher degree from an accepted, regionally accredited college or university and have a fingerprint-based history on file with CDE. During the application process, you will be required to upload a copy of the official, degree-conferred transcript(s) into your application.
Once issued, the authorization is valid in all Colorado school districts, BOCES, charter and approved facility schools.
1-Year Substitute Authorization
-A one-year substitute authorization requires you to hold a high school diploma or its equivalent and have a fingerprint-based history on file with CDE. These authorizations are district-, BOCES- or charter school-specific, and not all Colorado districts, BOCES or charter schools hire individuals with this authorization. When they do, the district, BOCES or charter school will provide you a completed form to include in your application.
Once issued, the authorization is valid only in the requesting school district, BOCES, charter or approved facility school.
New! 2020-21 Substitute Authorization
-In an effort to assist districts and students in these uncertain times, CDE has added a fourth authorization specifically for the 2020-2021 academic year.
Similar to the 1-year substitute authorization, a 2020-21 substitute authorization requires you to hold only a minimum of a high school diploma or its equivalent and a fingerprint-based history on file with CDE. Unlike the 1-year authorization, the 2020-21 authorization is NOT district-, BOCES- or charter school-specific and does not require a verification form. Ideal for college students and graduates, individuals between jobs or considering changing careers, and anyone interested in serving their communities and its students! During the application process, you will be required to confirm completion of high school or its equivalent.
Once issued, the authorization is valid only through June 30, 2021, in any accepting Colorado school district, BOCES, charter or approved facility school.
