    Honestly, with the teachers getting laid off and the economy still in the gutter...I feel as if I'm not going to get a full-time Teaching job.

    My question is: What do I have to do to sub for my district again next year?

    Am I already on the list for next year? Or do I have to tell someone?

    Last year my district just sent out a letter that detailed how much you subbed and a reasonable assurance that if your availability remained the same that you should expect to sub at least 90% as much as you did. With that letter was a sheet to send back if you intended to sub again, so I just filled it out and was on the sub list for this year.

    Roo - That's what the schools here do too. They send out letters to find out if substitute teachers are interested in subbing again or not. I just check mark the letter, sign it, and mail it back in.

    They mail us a form(we did it back in april) and it has basic info on it and we sign it and send it letting them know we can sub again and any info they need to know!

    Check with your sub coordinator. Our district also has us fill out a form saying we want to sub again and for what grades. As far as being a sub after layoffs, you will probably be lower on the list for calls because the laid off teachers will get the first choice of jobs. Don't worry too much though because many will choose not to sub (I didn't start subbing until October and was laid off in June.).

    My district sends us a paper where we check YES or NO if we still want to sub for the following yr, then we sign a couple of statements & mail it back in, that's it.

    If you don't know how your district does things, please call & see if they mail something or if you have to call in & do something via an automated system, etc. :)

    You have to contact the district secretaries in my area each school year.

    Each of the schools i subbed in last year sent a letter asking you to reply if you still wanted to be on the list... it was basically just checking to see that your info was the same as last year.

    Just like many others, my district sends a letter of reasonable assurance towards the end of the school year that we must sign and return. I'm expecting mine on Friday. Whoopee. Hopefully, I won't have to return to subbing.

    Same here. Last year I got letters in the mail around June asking if I wanted to come back.

    This year I have some concerns regarding two districts where I've only worked a few times this year due to laid off teachers having priority...not sure if they'll keep me. Guess I'll find out soon enough.

    I've never subbed, so take this for what it's worth.

    But in a tough economy I would go the extra mile.

    I would drop a letter to each principal, thanking him or her by name for the chance to work in that school, and expressing interest in subbing again next year. Then I would close by wishing all a relaxing summer.

    I figure it couldn't hurt.

    This is good in the districts that are HUGE where the P may not know you, but in my area the principals know me and I tell them thanks everytime I leave! They are not the ones who call me anyway its the teachers and/or office ladies!

    That's OK. It would probably be posted in the faculty room. And someone would be bound to remember "that nice sub who sent the Thank You note last spring."

    Or you've wasted 42 cents in postage. I would gamble the 42 cents.
