That is how it works where I work too. I am currently a substitute teacher. I had to be licensed by the state as a teacher, and interviewed to be on each district's sub list. Sometimes I get called in that morning, and sometimes (like this week) I get asked by the teacher to sub for prearranged leave. For the longer prearranged jobs, I often do the lesson planning as well. I am not a retired teacher, but I did go back to become a teacher after working in business for 25 years, so I am a "seasoned" employee.

All LT sub jobs (like maternity leaves) would require a separate application and interview, just like for a full time teaching job.

To be clear, they aren't really hiring. Someone else has already chosen that person for the "pool". They just make the arrangements for who works when.

I am a full time teacher. When i had my kids I chose my sub each time who were regular subs at my school. One sub was an assistant who had just graduated from college and was looking for a teaching job. I provided lesson plans for the first week. After that the sub was on her own. My district doesn't have paid maternity leave. Teachers have to use banked sick leave days or take leave without pay.

I teach full time.

We sub internally. When someone is going to be out for an extended time, the administration tries to get teachers who are free during those periods to cover the classes. In fact, just before Christmas, I covered a first period class for a good friend who was recovering from surgery.

We're paid extra to cover the classes.

Do your elementary level teachers have free periods to do it this way? Or just MS and HS?

Thank you. Some interesting and different answers. It's amazing the different policies required.


The reason for my questions.......I'm a veteran sub, 30 years this week at the same and only school district. I have done 16 long term jobs, ten being maternity leaves. I have a teaching degree but my certificate expired way back ironically before I did any of these long terms.

Anyway, I was aked in Oct by the building principal to cover for a pregnant 4th grade teacher due in Feb. Our school had a change over in administration (including our Super) in the fall and just yesterday (3 wks before teacher is due) they have decided to post the job. In my 30 years I was always just asked (sometimes begged ) to do a long term position.

But it sounds like that is fairly common practice to post the job. Hopefully they find someone in the next three weeks!!

....in our district, our subs aren't considered 'daily' or 'long-term' subs. However, if a teacher has had a particular sub for their class [that they like]and they know that they are going to be out for an extended period of time, the teacher will sometimes request for that particular sub to fill in, although the sub may turn down the long-term offer.....

I've subbed both long and short term. Our system lets teachers select a "preferred sub", so I see the listing or get a call about it before it goes out to all the subs, if the teacher wants. I have a BA in History, but no Ed courses. I'm signed up for only 2 schools, dd's elementary, and a special needs preschool, but I keep very busy, working most days of the week. I love my job!!!

For long term assignments, I'm sure a licensed teacher would be preferred but we're a small rural district, so there aren't too many of them signed up to sub.

In our district, someone on maternity leave would have an interim teacher fill in for them. Not a sub. Usually. The school would post the interim position on the district job website and interview certified teachers for the position.

Sounds like that's your answer. In our school district, the superintendent is elected. We've had three different superintendents the last three elections. Believe me, all of them do things differently and want to change LOTS of things. I would imagine that's what's happening in your district as well. You might want to get your license renewed just as a precaution. It may be as simple as contacting the state dept. of education and requesting that it be renewed. Can't hurt to check.

I'll be 59 next week. I was planning on retiring this past fall anyway but have to stay "active" until next January. So no, I don't have any plans on renewing anthing........was just wondering what were other schools' policies on these matters.

Timely post---I start a 4 week leave tomorrow, not for maternity leave, but for ankle surgery. I picked my sub; someone who has never subbed before. She is my assistant at an afterschool tutoring job and she is amazing. She is thinking of changing her major to teaching and this should be a good experience for her.

We can choose our daily and long-term subs from an approved sub list. For long-term subs, we have to choose someone who is a certified teacher. The positions are never posted.

It all depends on the district.

Around here the administration takes care of all of it; short term, or long term.
