Welcome to the educational “wildcat” family of the Louisburg School District! We are very pleased that you are interested in being a vital part of the Louisburg School District substitute teaching program.
Because of the difficulty involved in going into a school with little planning and preparation, it is important that the substitute teacher have a positive attitude and enthusiasm as well as be dependable, flexible and acquainted with the requirements, policies and procedures necessary to maintain the highest possible standards of service to our students. Standards are high for teachers in our district as we constantly pursue excellence in our educational programs. Adhering to the same high standards as regular teachers, our substitute teachers are considered an important part of achieving this educational excellence. We expect our substitutes to teach. You assume a demanding and critical role in the education of the youth in the Louisburg community. The cumulative effect of substitute teachers over the course of a year is significant to the educational process. You are an important person to us, and we expect you to do your best.
The responsibilities of the substitute teacher are the same as those of the regular classroom teacher. The substitute teacher must maintain the interest of the students, follow the plans prepared by the regular classroom teacher, and fulfill the teacher’s responsibilities for reporting and completing records (absentees, tardies). Substitute teachers must observe the school policies in regard to grading, discipline, and safety of students and maintain professional standards. The building principal should be notified if assistance is needed.
As a substitute, you will be placed on our active calling list, which will allow you an opportunity to substitute in the school district. Opportunities to substitute in the school district are available during the school year.
Read this information section carefully to be knowledgeable about district expectations and procedures. Please ask regular staff members to assist you whenever the need arises. If you need help, ask!
