SUBSTITUTE SYSTEM HELP DESK
Okaloosa Help Desk Information:
Phone Number: (850) 833-5817
Hours: Monday - Friday 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM
WORK REQUIREMENT POLICY
School Board policy requires you to work 9 times during a school year. If you fail to do this you will be removed entirely from the substitute list and released as a substitute.
DO NOT CALL POLICY
When a substitute does not meet the requirements and standards set forth for them as substitutes, they may lose the right to be called by the schools.
If substitutes do not perform as expected the school may request that the sub be placed on a DO NOT CALL list. If this happens, the substitute will be notified.
Please note, district procedure states if three schools request that a substitute not be called, the sub will be removed entirely from the substitute list and released as a substitute.
This unfortunate situation does occur from time to time AND is based on the need for all employees to be accountable for the safety, welfare, and academic achievement of district students. Also, a substitute may be dismissed for any single specific action that is determined to warrant dismissal by the Human Resources Department.
