Substitute Procedure

Substitute Procedure

Please begin coordinating a substitute as soon as you know you will not be in attendance. Let your co-teacher know that they should prepare for you to be absent. A post is placed in the Members only Forum section of this website on Mondays with the sub roster for the week. Please comment under the period you need a sub and tag the next person on the list, in order of listing. If you're on the sub roster but will not be available please let the Substitute Coordinator know. Lastly, please let your co-teacher know when you have found a substitute so they know who to expect.

If you are on the sub roster, please check the list at least once during the week, and again on Thursday if you have not already been asked to sub. If you are asked to sub, please reply and acknowledge that you are aware you will be subbing.

We know that last minute things can come up. If you need a sub on Friday morning, please text the Substitute Coordinator or the Director. Both their numbers can be found in our members only online directory.

Each week the coordinator will annotate their master list as to who was used and move them to the bottom of the list. Any subs not used will remain in line for the following week with more names added from the top of the master list. Please understand that some weeks we have more illnesses or people away and you may be asked to sub more than one week in a row. We appreciate your understanding and willingness when this occurs.

What's expected of you when you're a sub? As a sub you're not expected to lesson plan for the class. That responsibility lays with the remaining assigned teacher. When both class teachers are out, we ask that the subs make every attempt to coordinate a replacement class. This can be in line with the theme of the class or a replacement theme. Board games and organized free play are also acceptable as appropriate for the ages and interest of the class.
