Procedures Leading to Appointment


The Central Office is responsible for maintaining a list of qualified substitutes for all teaching and related positions.


Interested persons are to complete an application form and return it to the Central Office.


Upon approval of the Central Office, substitutes' names will be placed on the official substitute list.



In-School Procedures


Each principal is to develop procedures which ensure each substitute has completed necessary forms; received appropriate instructions, plans, and other resources needed to function properly in the position and the building; and been observed early and regularly in the performance of his/her responsibilities.



Long-Term Substitutes


A person will be considered a long-term substitute if s/he is appropriately certified and the staff member for whom s/he has been hired to replace has a leave which extends for more than fifteen (15) consecutive school days. The long-term substitute position will be terminated by the end of the school year.
