Re: Sub Problem


Date: Sat Aug 04 2001 - 16:43:53 PDT

In CT you must have a bachelor's degree to sub. I have found a couple of
people who are working on their MA in art ed...they love the experience and
make great subs. I can call and request them for my job. I have their home
numbers...and before I call in the job, I always call them to see if they are
free first. We also have a permenant sub...but the perm. sub we had last
year did not like subbing for art (and she was a friend of mine!~!!) so
rather than have someone in there who was uninterested...I always just booked
my own sub. The perm. sub has a job no matter what...if she/he is not
assigned...then they work with special ed.

We raised sub pay to $100 a day...but still have problems getting subs. We
have about 700 teachers in our on any given day.....and on
days were people go out for professional workshops...good grief!

The sub thing is a problem everywhere!!!
