Grosse Ile Township Schools
Bylaws & Policies


The Board of Education recognizes the need to procure the services of substitutes in order to continue the operation of the schools as a result of the absence of regular personnel.

Substitute personnel are subject to a criminal history record check. See Policy 3121.

The Superintendent shall employ substitutes for assignment as services are required to replace temporarily-absent regular staff members and fill new positions. Such assignment of substitutes may be terminated when their services are no longer required. Any substitute, however, who is employed directly by the District for 150 days or more during a school year of not less than 180 days, except under circumstances identified in statute, shall be given, during the balance of that year as well as during the succeeding school year, the first opportunity to accept or reject a contract for which the person is certified and qualified, provided that all other District teachers have been reemployed in accordance with the negotiated, collectively-bargained agreement.

Substitutes must possess a valid Michigan professional certificate and a permit, if substitute teaching in a subject for which s/he is not certified, except under the following circumstances:

 A.The Superintendent may employ noncertificated, nonendorsed substitutes to teach, in grades 9-12, a course in computer science, foreign language, mathematics, biology, chemistry, engineering, physics, robotics, or any other course approved by the State Board, providing they meet all of the conditions established by law and by the Superintendent.

 B.The Superintendent may also employ a substitute without a valid teaching certificate if the person has at least ninety (90) semester hours of college credit from a college or university.

In order to retain well-qualified substitutes for service in this District, the Board will offer competitive compensation at a rate set annually by the Board.

A substitute, employed directly by the District in one (1) specific teaching position, shall, after sixty (60) consecutive days in that assignment, be paid a salary not less than the minimum salary on the current salary schedule and granted the privileges provided regular staff.

A substitute shall be paid a minimum of one-half () day once the substitute is called.
