Certified Substitute Home/Contacts


The Southwest Ohio Council of Governments (SWO-COG) is a partnership between Butler County Educational Service Center and Warren County Educational Service Center established in June 2012 and is the sole provider of all certified substitute teachers for SWO-COG partner school districts. Participating districts will only employ certified substitute teachers who have been processed and hired through the SWO-COG. Our certified substitute teachers may substitute in any of the SWO-COG districts.
At this time, the SWO-COG will not be hiring non-bachelor substitutes. You will need to go through the individual school district(s) if you are a non-bachelor substitute.
