    I keep reading about substitute teachers who received a letter saying they were dismissed from subbing in districts. Would they dismiss you if the sub service can't reach you, or you say no? I just started subbing and have been called about 10 times. At least half of the times I was already subbing at one of their schools (the secretary booked me in advance - I only know they called from caller ID). The rest of the time they have called late (after school starts - probably for half day) and I wasn't home. Today they called and I had to say "no" because I had another commitment.

    I should mention that of 31 days I've been subbing, I've gone in 16. It's just that only one has been through the sub service (the rest were pre-booked)

    Thanks for your advice - sorry for all the questions!

    I'm not sure where you live, but in Nevada you can get kicked out of sub services for turning down a certain number of jobs. You might want to check your district's policy on that.

    Wow -what happens if you work for other districts?

    I technically haven't turned down many (only the one today), but they've called a lot while I was subbing at one of their other schools so I suppose it could look like I'm unavailable.

    I might call tomorrow and just mention that I'm subbing a lot at the one school, and ask if I should call at the start of the week to let them know my schedule, or if they already have that information.

    That's what I would do. To them, it looks like you're turning down all those jobs. I live in Vegas, so it's just one district, unfortunately.

    In my district, there is a major need for substitutes. You can decline as many jobs as you need (or want) to. You are only reprimanded if you cancel jobs. Cancelling a job is accepting one and then changing your mind later and not going to it. You are called in and written up after a certain number of cancellations. After 10, you are relieved of your substitute duties.
