    FAQs

    • How much will it cost to become a Guest Teacher?
      • California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CCTC) application fee: $100
      • Fingerprint for employment: $20 (MPCSD will reimburse this cost)
      • CCTC Fingerprint fee: $72

    • I have been fingerprinted in the past for another district/organization. Will I need to be fingerprinted again?
      • Yes, because you will be a Guest Teacher with the Menlo Park City School District, you will need to be fingerprinted specifically for our District. Fingerprint results are not shared between employers.

    • I had an Emergency 30-Day Substitute Permit that has expired; how do I renew it?
      • To renew a substitute permit, visit the CCTC website and follow the prompts to renew. You will need a Visa or MasterCard for the online renewal process. Please don’t hesitate to contact the MPCSD HR Department for renewal help! 

    • When I renew my credential/permit, do I need to be fingerprinted again?
      • Once you hold a credential with CCTC you will not be required to be printed for CCTC again, unless your credential/permit has been expired for more than 18 months. In that case CCTC would require a new livescan clearance. If you do not renew a credential on time and you are working as a Guest Teacher for the Menlo Park City School District, your paycheck will be held and you will not be allowed to work until the document is renewed.

    • I have a credential issued from a state other than California; what do I need to do?
      • In California, all teaching, services and administrative credentials are issued by the CCTC. Although you may apply directly to CCTC for a California credential based on a teaching credential from another state, we recommend making an appointment with our HR Department to assist you with the fingerprinting and paperwork. The requirements for a California teaching credential based on an out of state teaching credential may be found on the CCTC website. CCTC takes approximately 50 days to process an application.

    • Is the pay rate the same for all Guest Teacher assignments regardless of the grade level?
      • Yes, the daily pay rate for Guest Teachers starts at $170 per day.

    • How long does it take to get an Emergency 30-Day Substitute Permit?
      • As a district the San Mateo County, we are required to submit all credential applications through the County Office of Education. Depending on the processing timeline of the office, this process can take between 10-14 days.
      • While the permit is called the 30-Day Substitute Permit,” the permit is valid for one full year from the issuance date. The holder of this permit is restricted to working no more than 30 days in one general education assignment and 20 day in a special education assignment.


    • If I’m working on the 30-Day Substitute Permit, what happens after 30 days?
      • While the permit is called the 30-Day Substitute Permit,” the permit is valid for one full year from the issuance date. The holder of this permit is restricted to working no more than 30 days in one general education assignment and 20 day in a special education assignment.
