    No, but I'm sure it's available if anyone asks.

    Our subs are all certified teachers, so information about their qualifications, etc. is public record. As far as I know there isn't a public list of subs employed by a specific school district.

    That part (qualifications and such) I would assume is standard. The part I'm not a fan of (as you know) is putting the list of "approved substitutes" out for public consumption.

    Approved in board minutes

    On Aesop for teachers-we each set our own preferred/do not call within Aesop

    No list the public sees other than minutes

    What is the concern with your name being on a public list?

    I'd imagine they may be posted in the Board minutes, but we don't keep a public list.

    The board minutes of the proceedings are public record, and unless they are in private session due to the sensitive/confidential nature of the business, they can be accessed by anyone who wants to wade through the stuff in any local newspaper. Some people have nothing better to do, so they do comb through those minutes, although most frequently they are looking for ways the board is spending money, since that directly affects taxpayers (NJ). They are looking for huge purchases/hirings that seem redundant or over the top, financially, but if they want the material, schools are bound by law to actually do the copying of the material, under our Sunshine Act.

    That said, anyone who wants to know who is subbing in the school simply has to ask the kids - they will tell you without batting an eye. Will they include people who are approved by never used? Nope, but if you have actually worked inside the building, they will know and share without compunction. That means their parents know, and you know how parents talk/gossip. If you are actually subbing in the district, your identity is known and freely shared by a large number of people. If you are approved, but never set foot inside the school, very few people will ever know that.

    I'm with czacza - I don't see the problem with this being public knowledge.

    This was part of my series on dreading the first day of school.

    In smaller towns, the local newspaper covers school board meetings. Substitute teachers are approved at these meetings and sometimes the names are in the local papers. I know mine has been listed.
