Thank you for your interest in substitute teaching for Littleton Public Schools!

We’re excited to announce that Littleton Public Schools has entered into a partnership agreement with ESS, a leading education personnel and management company. As of November 28, 2022, ESS will manage the district's daily and long-term substitute teachers and substitute para staff.

The partnership calls for ESS to recruit, screen, train, hire, place and manage applicants interested in becoming substitutes for Littleton Public Schools. It's important that ESS hires as many of our current substitutes as possible. ESS has plans to hire additional substitute employees locally as needed to fill classrooms with qualified substitutes who can contribute to enhanced student achievement. The ESS program also includes a local management team, as well as a significant commitment to the LPS community through various involvement initiatives.
