Summer Opportunities

Will You Join Us?

How do I apply for summer work opportunities?

You must apply online. Go to The School District of Philadelphia’s website (www.philasd.org). Go to your LOGIN screen (where you would sign in for SchoolNet or view your paycheck). Log in using your email username and password to gain access to the list of applications. Click on the “Summer Programs” icon. For more detailed information on applying for summer programs, view the 2016 Summer Users Guide.

Is it required that an employee work the entire program or can they work only some days?

If you choose to work this summer, you must work every scheduled day. If you miss a day, you cannot use leave days.  You will not be paid for the day(s) you miss. If you miss more than three days without an approved reason, you will be removed from the program.

Can employees take a week off for a previously planned vacation?

No. If you have a previously planned vacation, do not apply for summer work.

Will there be a way to be a substitute for the summer instead of being a full time teacher?

A substitute list will be developed based upon the seniority list of staff who apply but are not hired. Since all staff are expected to work the entire program there will be very few, if any, substitute opportunities available.
