Each substitute is required to complete a “Report Form” and leave it with the secretary at the end of each assignment.
The regular employee and a building administrator will complete an “Evaluation Form” after each assignment. A copy of this evaluation will be sent to the Substitute Services Office and kept in the substitute’s personnel file. After several positive evaluations, substitutes will receive a letter from the Substitute Services office. Greg Gilliam, Human Resources Supervisor, will contact you in the event that an evaluation requires a discussion.

The district utilizes an automated calling system called Aesop. Each day new assignments are entered into Aesop. The substitute can log into Aesop to check for assignments.
