If you have noticed a change in the number of calls you are receiving from the Substitute Calling System, this is probably due to changes made to your profile. The system is working properly; profiles were updated with the information provided on the Substitute Preference Surveys. With profiles updated, the system is distributing calls more efficiently.
Our greatest need for substitutes is on Mondays and Fridays. Please check you profile to ensure you are available on these days in order to receive calls.
Please keep your profile up to date with your availability. If you have a commitment and will not be able to substitute on a certain day(s) or time(s), please make yourself unavailable for that day or time only. This will keep the system from calling you to work that day and free it up to contact another substitute that is available to work.
