Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce to host free substitute teacher hiring event 


The Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce (BACC) is hosting a substitute teacher hiring event Thursday, Oct. 22, at 1 p.m., at the Chamber office, 409 Vine St. in Batesville. 

Applicants must register with WillSub, at, and click the link for orientation meetings by State, prior to the meeting.

All fees will be waived for the first ten participants registering with Batesville, Cedar Ridge, Midland, and Southside districts.
