OK….. I am in the process of getting reactivated as a sub in my district. Part of this process is watching videos and answering questions to show my understanding. One section was all about special education and the role of a teacher and a substitute teacher. Now, here is where it got interesting; It said that the everyday teacher is supposed to leave the accommodations of students with IEP’s and 504’s for the substitute. In all of my years of training, I have been told those documents are for mine, the resource teacher’s, and administration’s eyes only. Have I been taught wrong and been neglectful in leaving this information for my substitute teachers or was I taught correctly? The majority of substitute teachers are not certified and therefore have not been fully trained on any of these documents.
What are your thoughts??
