No one has found more creative ways to lose money subbing. I am the master, and I am proving it again. This year, the district director sent out a letter to all subs stating that an updated ID badge will have to be worn to all school sites this year, and that if you had not made an appointment to get your photo taken by September 7 , that you will not be able to accept any jobs. She added that you only need to make an appointment if your photo had never been taken. If your photo had already been taken, all you had to do was come pick up your badge this week. Yesterday I went to pick up my badge, only to discover that it wasn't available because I needed my photo taken. My sub secretary said that for some unknown reason, my photo was not in the database, so she would let me accept jobs until my Sept 19 appointment, and I could just use last years badge. Unfortunately, my appointment is for 9 AM, so to keep this appointment I would need to miss a day's work for an omission that was not my fault. If I they do not have after school appointments and I am required to come in during class hours , should I fill out a petition to get a day's pay? What would be my chances of success?
