In our district, the secretary is able to block a sub, but there’s a process. We would be required to fill in some paperwork stating our concerns with the subs performance. This however might hurt his reputation. We’ve had some subs in our building that have weak classroom management, set off our kids with challenging behaviors and leave the classroom looking like a war zone. These would be our biggest reasons for blocking a sub, but we’ve never gone as far as submitting a statement because it feels too harsh. However, if that particular sub picks up the job, can you contact him and let him know you were hoping a specific person would pick it up? A bit uncomfortable but honest.

You could also just drop the job if he picks it up and repost after some time passes.

We tend to find our favourite subs and pre arrange with them so we avoid problems.

Good subs are worth their weight in gold. Hope you can figure things out!
