Manage substitutes

Substitute teachers can work at many sites for limited periods of time. To facilitate this movement, create the substitute user at the district level and then assign them (or have school sites claim them) for a specific date range.

Add a new substitute to your district

  1. Sign in to CatapultEMS.com using a District Safety Team account.
  2. From the District Dashboard, choose Manage District Users (top right side of page).
  3. Choose Add New User (green, top right) or choose Edit next to an existing user.
  4. Fill in the user details (see “User details” below for instructions).
  5. At the bottom of the page, choose Substitute.
  6. Choose Save.

Note: Substitutes cannot sign into CatapultEMS.com with their username and password unless they are currently working at a site (i.e. assigned to a site in EMS).
