Frenship Substitute Orientation Yearly Review… Thank you for serving our students and for providing valuable instruction. Substitute teachers allow us to operate when our teachers can not be present. We appreciate you!!!
Frenship Expectations…. We want subs that are committed to serving our students and that are dependable. We have high expectations for our students and do not expect this to change because a sub is in the classroom. Our expectation is that you will sub at least 5 times per month. We will run a report every THREE months to determine who is actively subbing in Frenship ISD. If you are not consistently picking up jobs, we will remove you from the Frenship substitute list. If there are extenuating circumstances, please contact Vicky Welch at If two or more principals request for you to not sub at their campus, we will contact you and remove you from the sub list. Once you are removed, you will no longer be eligible to sub at Frenship.
Fingerprint requirements… All subs will be required to be fingerprinted per Senate Bill 9 Subs will be notified when they sign up to sub that they are required to be fingerprinted. HR will print FAST passes for non-certified subs. If fingerprints are taken at an area district, you will not need to repeat the fingerprint process Subs will be responsible for paying their fingerprint fees which will be $52.20/certified or $50.20 / non-certified Frenship will have you sign a permission form to run a Criminal Background Check with Safeschool. Applicants must report any criminal history that might appear on either report. Failure to report criminal history is grounds for Frenship to not allow you to sub in the district.
General Guidelines: If you feel someone is harassing you, it is your responsibility to tell that person that they are making you feel uncomfortable. If the harassment does not stop at this point, then it is your responsibility to report the harassment to a supervisor. Don’t say anything that you would not want printed in the newspaper or broadcast on TV. Don’t say or do anything you would not want your significant other to know that you said or did. Don’t say or do anything you would not say or do in front of the other person’s significant other – or parent. Be cautious – things that you think are funny or innocent may not seem that way to another person. Be careful of all words and actions! Sexual Harassment
With regard to Employee-to- Student, the behavior is ALWAYS forbidden... regardless of whether the student “welcomes” the conduct. STOP DHC ( Local) defines sexual harassment of students by staff to include “welcome or unwelcome advances.” -Sexual Harassment-
“In the EYE of the beholder...” While there are similarities between HARASSMENT and FLIRTING, there is one BIG difference: –How the receiving person FEELS as a result of the sending person’s behavior (Harassment is truly in the eyes of the beholder.) NOTE: The law is concerned with the IMPACT of the behavior, not the INTENT. -Sexual Harassment-
Purpose of Reporting Child Abuse The purpose of child abuse reporting legislation is to protect the best interests of children, offer protective services to prevent harm to children, stabilize the home environment, preserve family life whenever possible, and encourage cooperation in dealing with the problem of child abuse. It is important for you recognize the indicators of sexual abuse victims. By reporting suspicion, it may be the child’s only opportunity to tell.
How To Report… Talk to the Administration at the campus. They may have additional information that they may or may not be able to share with you. Two Ways to Report Abuse: Call the Abuse Hotline toll-free 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, nationwide. Make your report through a secure web site and you will receive a response within 24 hours.
Electronic Media School district employees will be held responsible for personal and/or school use of electronic media. Use caution when posting words and/or pictures. These are PUBLIC sites. It is not a good idea to “befriend” students or parents on Facebook or other social networks. The employee continues to be subject to applicable state and federal laws, local policies, administrative regulations and the Code of Ethics and Standard Practices for Texas Educators. The employee may not set up or update the employee’s personal social network page (s) using the district’s computers, network, or equipment. Best Practice – Remember that you represent Frenship and employees are responsible for their public conduct even when they are not acting as district employees.
Teachers in locale will assist you as needed. DISCIPLINE Be sure to introduce yourself and tell something interesting about you. Lay out your expectations – but empower the students. Only send to office after fair warning.
MISBEHAVIOR is… Anything a student does that interferes with… Your ability to teach and conduct class His/her ability to learn Others’ ability to learn
Suggestions… Be sure to locate the School wide Discipline plan if available. Ask a coworker about discipline procedures. Set expectations for behavior early but remember that students will test the limits. Students are watching for your reaction to ALL behaviors – Calm is BEST!!
Praise in Public Criticize In Private!!
STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE Ignore the behavior if at all possible. If it stops – great! Make eye contact with the person. It says, “I see you; stop it.” Use proximity. Move to his/her area. Drop his/her name in the lesson. “Did you know, John, that India has…” Stop teaching and remind student of the rule. “Jill, you are supposed to be doing what?” Wait. “Do that now.” Pause for student to correct behavior. Respond, “thank you,” or assign consequences.
Things to do… Firm Fair Friendly Focused Hold each student accountable for his/her choices!
High School - Latin, AP Chemistry, Welding…Please consider subbing in these classes. You are usually not required to “teach” but more to monitor when in specialty type classes. Plans will be specific and often students are self directed or assist with the instruction.
Special Education Classes…. Subbing in these classes will be so rewarding!! You will have assistants that are familiar with the students and their routines.
Reese Alternative Campus – A SAFE Zone to sub!! Programs at Reese: The STAR program DAEP (discipline program) WINGS (credit recovery) Teenage Pregnancy / Daycare
District Emergency Response Information: Be sure to locate EXIT doors in case of evacuation. Check for Fire and Weather maps in the classroom.
