The 'Summer Letter', which in the past years was sent by U.S. mail to each substitute teacher, was emailed this year to each substitute's district email address.  This process uses available technology to save both money and time, and important communication will continue to be emailed in the future.

On June 13, 2011, the district's Email platform will change to Google Email.  For the necessary online training, go to http://trainu.palmbeach.k12.fl.us/logon and search for Google Resource Center.

Substitute ID Badges

Click here for Badge Renewal Information for Substitute badge renewal information for school year 2011/2012.  Any questions regarding the badge renewal process or fingerprinting please contact School Police at 561-434-8300. 

Fingerprinting fees are $99. ALL SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS ARE REQUIRED TO HAVE AN UNEXPIRED SUBSTITUTE ID BADGE IN VIEW AT ALL TIMES WHILE AT A SCHOOL SITE.  A school can send you home if you do not have your sub ID badge.  You DO NOT need to complete the Code of Ethics again.

Cancelled Jobs

It is the substitutes responsibility to contact the school and inform them if they cancel a job. If a teacher cancels a job it is the teacher or schools responsibility to inform the sub of the cancellation. If the teacher or school fails to do so and the sub shows up, the sub is to call the sub office while still at the school site and we will try to find a job for a full day in the area. If nothing is available, the sub is to stay at the school site for a half day and get paid for the half day.  If the sub refuses to stay the school is under no obligation to pay them.

Interim Positions

When a substitute teacher is hired into an interim teaching position, his or her substitute status becomes inactive.  To request reactivation of the sub status at the end of the interim position, the school secretary will email Linda Everline.  This must be done prior to the completion of the interim position to avoid a break in service.  It is up to the substitute to inform the school secretary that they wish to sub again.
