Our goal is to provide the best education for every child, every day, and each employee is a vital part of that mission. As a substitute, you’re asked to step in with short notice to help maintain the continuity and stability that is so important to the school program…Thank you for all your support!


1. Submit a Bayfield School District Application Online
2. Apply for a Colorado Substitute Authorization
    • If you currently do not have a valid Colorado substitute authorization we can guide you through the process to apply on the Colorado Department of Education website.
    • To complete the authorization process you will need to complete a background check process that involves a special code. The administration office will contact you with that code once the school district application is complete and you have been interviewed.
    • Preference will be given to applicants with a current Colorado Department of Education Substitute Authorization attached to their application.
