Sub folder and site information
All staff will leave lesson plans or an outline of the day when they have a planned absence. Each staff member should have a back up emergency sub plan for when an unplanned absence occurs. Some programs have site binders with additional information.
Metro North ABE use the sub finding system called Absence Management. Open positions are posted on the system and include information about location, type of class, staff member, and time. Subs can set up to have Absence Management call and alert when an opening is available or subs can check for open sub jobs on their own. Supervisors are not allowed to give out a substitute’s phone number to staff, but substitutes may share their phone number or email address with staff if they want to be contacted for jobs.
Substitute hours are recorded on time sheets and submitted to the Metro North ABE secretary.
