TITLE: PROCEDURES FOR EMPLOYMENT OF SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS
The Board of School Directors believes that the role of a substitute teacher is important for maintaining continuity in teaching and learning. The selection, assigning, and evaluation of performance shall be the responsibility of the school principal.
Whenever possible, a substitute teacher will be a person who is licensed or possesses knowledge in the area of assignment and demonstrated success in teaching.
A substitute employed for more than ten (10) consecutive school days in the same position will be considered a long-term substitute. Beginning the eleventh (11th) day, the substitute will be paid on the regular salary schedule as established by the Superintendent. Fringe benefits will not be provided, except in compliance with law.
If at the time a substitute is employed it is known that the period of service will be in excess of then (10) days, the substitute will be paid on the regular salary schedule from the first day of service.
Substitutes employed for more than thirty (30) consecutive school days in the same position for the same teacher shall be licensed unless a waiver is granted.
All substitute teachers will make application through the Superintendent’s office and a master list of approved substitutes will be prepared annually and distributed to the principals.
