About the Co-op

General description

The Substitute Cooperative is a substitute consortium comprised of 7 school districts located in the Lincolnwood, Morton Grove and Skokie area.
The role of a substitute teacher is truly a professional job.  We do not consider this position as one of "Baby Sitter", but as a job well done by a competent teacher.  Substitute teaching involves many different experiences with many individuals. 

Our school districts use an automated phone/internet placement service of AESOP. Once you have gone through the complete application process including interview and criminal background check, an Aesop multi district ID and Pin will be issued.

Also, by being a part of The Substitute Cooperative, you will have the added benefit of being able to join the Partnership Financial Credit Union.
