Substitutes are still needed in all areas.   Anyone interested in substituting and all current substitutes MUST complete the StaffEZ online application. Any substitute that worked with StaffEZ (PESG) in the past will NOT have to complete the application. .  Anyone with questions may contact Roger Blanken at 865-828-3611 or email
