Substitute Handbook:
Research has shown that a student spends over one full year with a substitute teacher by the time they graduate from high school. It is important for the student to continue to receive quality instruction during the teachers absence. You, as a substitute, are in a unique position in the district and are an essential part of school success. There are certain policies and procedures that must be followed. Therefore, the substitute handbook has been developed in an effort to clarify policies and procedures that apply to substitutes to make your work more effective and enjoyable.  All substitutes are required to read and return an acknowledgement form.
