    There was a district where I was checking out sub positinos where if you try to apply to be a SUB, in big RED letters it says that they aren't taking any substitute applications at this time.

    You know it's getting pretty bad when they aren't even taking on SUBS?!

    Usually by the end of the school year they stop taking sup applications. They usually don't update and start accepting them till the beginning of the school year. But, yes it is bad times.

    Ours stopped and only will let certified teachers sub, not just someone with a bachelors. It is bad when districts can be picky and choosy with their subs. 12 years ago when started in the teaching field the districts were begging for subs.

    In my area, they stopped hiring subs last year. They did just open up again but I bet they will be much pickier now.

    I just checked our website again. Apparently, they are not going to hire subs for this coming year.

    I was told by the district here to go around and apply as a sub now, (even while waiting for full time work) because as it gets closer to school starting and people realize how thin on the ground the classroom jobs are- then they will flood the sub pool. (Here, you have to apply to each school individually to sub and be accepted by the principal.)

    A lot of districts around me aren't hiring subs as well.

    Subs in my particular Houston district get paid only $9-$11 an hour for subbing. I don't think there is a shortage, but they certainly can't be as picky as to say "certified teachers only". That's crazy!

    Here in GA teachers that had been RIF'd and receiving unemployment were told that if they sub for a school system they will lose their unemployment. Now if that ain't a low blow.

    Well, yeah, if the income they make as a sub is more than they qualify for UE...then yes, of course they would lose it...but that all dependson the income they'd be making

    This is true of ANY job you apply for while ON UE.

    Well here they prefer certified teachers, but will take the bachelors or at least 48 hours of college. There are several to pick from. Hope it don't fill up too bad because that is my plan B!!:lol:

    Florida's UE system is so antiquated that if you make more than $45 a week, they start reducing your benefit amount dollar for dollar. It will extend your time getting it but honestly why work if you can make just as much sitting at home doing nothing? :mad: All of the social safety nets are set-up like this. Do a little and lose everything and people wonder there are some people that never get off assistance.
