Darren’s district had required hiring substitutes from the “laid off teacher list,” even if meant a laid-off third-grade teacher would be assigned to “cover” his math class instead of a retired math teacher. New policy: Go back to the old policy on requesting substitutes.
Today we got the following information from our school secretary: “As of today HR has removed the restriction of not being able to request and confirm subs of your choice. Hurray!”
Did too many teachers complain? Or did all the laid-off teachers find jobs?
