Why are they running ads in the paper for substitute teacher workshops when someone told me that don't even use substitute teachers in the schools? If they do get a real substitute, the secretary usually just picks her pets to come in.

They do use subs, even new ones, just not as much as they use to. Take the workshop and get all the paperwork done. After the board approves you then you'll be ready if you get called.

Why do they use the Head of the NAACP to sub?
He is thrown out of city meeetings all the time.
BOE needs to be cautious of his community
activism.This does not look good around young
kids.Parents read the paper and I'm sure do not
approve of him embarrassing the city on a weekly
basis.Neither do parents approve of him leading
a discussion to their children in a History
or Government class on let's say civil rights
topics for example.He was in the paper again this week for showing out at the meeting.Radical and
crazy is not the message young impressionable kids
need to see. Can I get an AMEN!

Amen. The one picking him is the one picking the rest of her friends...all of which are black. How can the board go on a retreat to Amelia Island Plantation and not let teachers have substitutes when they are out? Give the teachers back their planning periods.

why do so many people on here hate on the head of the NAACP? is it because he tells the truth about the way the city is stealing money from the city by increasing the citizens electric bill? or how the city fire and suspend people just of allegations that are not true? or do you just hate on that man because he is not scared to tell the truth about your bad kids in school? prove to me that he has said or done anything that was not true, please have your facts, by the way he was asked to leave the city hall not kicked out! this crooked town needs more real men like him to stand up and fight for whats right

Who is the head of the Naacp in CC?
the point

The point here is that substitutes are only used in some of the schools. Other schools are only using black subs. Can we go back to the old days when teachers picked their subs based on education and background? If we have the money for retreats, we have the money for substitute teachers.
pay?

How much does a substitute teacher get paid?

I want to say $40 a day for high school,$50 a day for some college and maybe $60 a day for college or certified. I'm sure someone will correct me, but those are ball park figures to the best of my knowledge.

Teachers used to get subs when they were absent/sick, but now they cover for each other during planning periods. I don't know where all the sub money went. It needs to be part of the budget.

They DO NOT use subs at the High School. The other teachers have to give up their planning periods to cover for absent teachers. this causes them to have to work on their own time to make up for their lost planning time. The people at the County Office and the Administrators are supposed to sub, but none of them ever do. If you ask the Super or anyone else why this does not happen as it is supposed to you will not get an answer or the answer is "I'll have to check on this and get back with you." Never happens!!!!!!

They DO NOT use subs at the High School. The teachers have to use their planning periods to sub for absent teachers, causing them to have to work on their own time to do their planning. The people at the Central Office and the Administrators are supposed to do the subbing but they never do. And if you ask the Super or the Principal you either don't get an answer or you get "I'll have to check on this and get back to you." Never happens!!
would love to

Not only does it cause them to lose their planning period, it causes a lot of hard feelings and a decline in morale. I guess they thought this would make teacher attendance better and it has gotten worse. People that are out once a month are still out once a month. They do not care if someone else has to cover for them. It is hard enough to run to the bathroom between classes, much less run to another class and teach kids in a different content area that you have never met. It's the first day of school every week.

I also causes problems when the same teachers are selected every time to cover for the same few that are always out or late. This process is part of the whole money saving thing that occurred in 07. Special ed teachers are pulled the most, because they are considered expendable as they are co-teachers and not considered real teachers by many admin, though this process is illegal..

Just remember, not all racists are white. Whatever "beliefs" you have should be checked at the door. There are some black school employees who do not like white people.

racist if you check your facts that man had left that place a year before that so called incident happened, and for the record a child nose didn't get burned off, I really think you don't have an clue what you are talking about!

Is he a certified teacher? I don't claim to know. If he isn't, why was he picked to sub over certified teachers? Because he is black. Call it what you want...it is racism. Looking after your "own" instead of doing what is best for children is racism.

You are just a name caller. Since you know all about him, I'm asking: Is he a certified teacher? Should he have been called over a certified teacher who is a sub? This really isn't for this thread anyway. I think this thread is about subs.
