Saint Mary’s school maintains a list of competent, qualified substitute teachers that are called upon to provide classroom instruction in the absence of the regular teacher.  Substitutes are paid on a per diem basis calculated on an hourly basis.  Substitutes may apply to be added to the Saint Mary’s substitute list after an application is received, background screening is completed, and the candidate becomes familiar with classroom routines and school practices.

When a teacher is absent, office staff will contact those on the substitute list in an effort to cover the absence.  Although every effort is made to notify the substitute with sufficient notice of need, teacher illness or other immediate circumstances leading to an absence results in a request for a substitute without notice.  Saint Mary’s is grateful to those who can be flexible and readily available for service.

Every effort is made to match the qualifications and training of a substitute with the duties of the absent teacher.  While it is not a requirement that substitutes be licensed in the area of instruction for which they are substituting, preference is given to those with classroom experience in the instructional area.  Substitutes can expect to receive lesson plans for the period of time the teacher will be absent, support from the absent teacher’s colleagues, and assistance when needed from the administration.

Long term substitutes (for absences such as family medical leave, extended leave, and other absences expected to exceed two or more weeks) are selected following the regular hiring procedures of Saint Mary’s school.
