I was complaining earlier this year about the “Silence of the Calls” situation with both of the school districts I’m signed up with. No assignments for almost all of January and several weeks with only one or two calls. Then things started picking up with my favored district.
I let the other district slide, but still wondered why there were absolutely NO call assignments at all for the last four months. Am I on somebody’s s--- list over there? Did the district office discover this blog and not like some entries? (The letter post was about a school in this district).
With today being the last day of EASTER break and some time on my hands, I went to the district office to find out what’s what. To my surprise they had me and about 400 other subs on the “inactive/restricted status” list.
It seems that they installed a new computer that invalidated all our “California Emergency Substitute Teaching Permits” status. They’re working on the problem. I’m now wondering when they discovered the problem and how long they have been working to fix it. Three months? Nahhh….
The substitute coordinator re-checked all my credentials and “reinstated” my status as a substitute in good standing. Sure enough, by the time I returned home, the substitute system called with a couple of jobs for me.
Ahh! The wonders of technology! Good luck to the other 399 subs out there!!
