Why do we have to have a sub training?
We had a risk assessment representative come to our school. One of the areas we were audited on was Substitute and Auxillary personnel training. Although we've had some informal orientations in the past, these did not address those legal policies that you are held accountable for by being an employee of our district such as sexual harassment, bullying, and dress code.
It is required that all AISD employees direct deposit their paychecks.
