Being a guest teacher, coach, aide, or paraprofessional provides you with flexibility. YOU decide when or where you’d like to help. Guests who help in our schools can accept or decline any assignment. Join us in supporting our educators with the meaningful work of helping Lakewood students achieve. 

    Lakewood Public Schools contracts with ESS/Willsub to provide guest teachers, aides, food service, secretaries, and contracted positions.  Substitute applicants will be employees of ESS/Willsub and should begin the application process via  WillSub before getting fingerprinted.  It's an easy process.


    All guest teachers, coaches, and temporary applicants who wish to join our team at Lakewood Public Schools must email Vicki Nucich or call 616.374.7434 ext 4421 to obtain the correct Livescan fingerprinting forms.  Once you receive the form from Lakewood, please contact any Sheriff’s office to schedule an appointment.  Once you complete the fingerprint process, the form must be returned to Lakewood Central Office.

    If you are a retired Michigan Public School employee, please call the Finance Office directly at 616.374.7434 ext 4421.
