    Current Employee - Substitute Teacher  in  Palmdale, CA
    Current Employee - Substitute Teacher in Palmdale, CA

    I have been working at Palmdale School District part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Automated call system and online access to jobs through subfinder.
    Pay is comparable to pay in areas of LA County with a higher cost of living.
    The district covers K-8, with many schools within a relatively small geographical boundary.
    Flexible schedule.

    Cons

    The hourly pay seems to be decreasing, which is the case for pretty much all subs in LA County.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train secretaries on how to interact with subs and make sure ahead of time that 1) subs have a handout with Bell Schedule, including grade level transitions such as lunch, recess, and snack time, 2)That there is a working clock in the classroom the sub will be in , and 3) That subs are given keys that can open the classroom where they will be, and 4) Correct start time errors on the job description. Perhaps the time to start posted on subfinder should be the time the first bell rings , with instructions on how many minutes to arrive before that time as a standard practice across the schools. Also, all schools should be in session for the same length of time across the district.
