The Mifflin County School District continues to have a shortage of substitute teachers, substitute paraprofessionals/aids, substitute school nurses, substitute cafeteria workers, and substitute janitors, as well as full-time, part-time and substitute bus drivers.

All elementary and secondary buildings within the district are experiencing these shortages of substitutes.

Due to a lack of necessary bus drivers, there have been bus routes to and from school cancelled for multiple days at time. There have been away sporting events cancelled, since there was not transportation available to take student athletes to these events.

Even being able to work as a substitute one day a week in any of the positions listed below would be a great benefit to the students and staff of the Mifflin County School District.
