    Substitute teacher applicants must complete the Professional Teaching Standards Board (PTSB) APPLICATION FOR SUBSTITUTE PERMIT, which can also be accessed at

    When applying for a substitute permit you will need:

    1. $50.00 - for the substitute teacher permit (valid for 5 years)
    2. $50.00 - for the fingerprint processing to the state
    3. $5.00 – cash to local police department at time of actual fingerprinting process
    4. Applicants must provide official college transcripts
    5. Verification of U.S. and Wyoming Constitution courses or tests (see below)

    The two $50.00 fees can be combined when submitting to PTSB.  They will accept credit card payments, checks or money orders for $100.00 but NO CASH.  Please make checks or money orders payable to PTSB.


    • Wyoming PTSB requires that all substitute teachers have successfully completed a minimum of 60 semester hours of college course work. It is your responsibility to have your official transcript(s) submitted with your application to PTSB.  When you receive your transcripts DO NOT OPEN THEM, they need to be in the sealed envelope(s) when submitted with the application to PTSB. 


    • Official fingerprint cards are available at the Educational Services Center located at 1000 West 8th Fingerprinting is to be completed at the Gillette Police Department which is located at 201 E. 5th St.   

              DO NOT FILL OUT THE FINGERPRINT CARDS – they will fill out all sections while you are there.  The Police Department will ONLY fingerprint on Monday, Wednesday & Friday from 1:00pm-4:30pm.  You              will need a valid driver’s license and $5.00 cash.


    • PTSB also requires successful completion of courses in Wyoming State Government and US Government. If you have taken these two courses for college credit, they will be verified on your official transcripts.  If you have not taken the government courses in college, study guides for both tests can also be obtained at Educational Services Center and the tests can be administered at ESC by calling (307) 682-5171 to schedule an appointment to complete the tests.  There are 20 multiple choice questions on each test.  You must score at least 15 out of 20 questions correctly and you may take the tests again if necessary.
