Like I said in my other topic, I got a second job, but my availability changed from two days to one day.
Is one day a week ok for us to do without being fired for not enough work?

What if you're doing a long-term assignment in the same or another district? Couldn't you let your sub-coordinator know not to take you off the list because you are doing something long term? Even if that means working at another part-time job.

It depends on your school district

I am set to work in two school districts... each in a different county. One county's board of education told us that we had to work ten days as a minimum for the school year. If we didn't meet that minimum we would be dropped!

The county that I live in keeps me so busy that I don't have to worry about a minimum.

One district I work in requires 10 days, and I barely make that each year.

The other I think is 15 but I work regularly there and it's not a problem.

Depends on the district

I didn't work a single day for two years a while back but I kept my info up to date because I knew I'd eventually work again. No one seemed to even notice. That was six years ago and no one has ever said a word to me about it.

For the districts where I sub, it is one day. Some of the sub outsourcing companies try to require a higher number.

Where I sub it is one day, some districts may require more.

Some sub services have their own requirements, I know Kelly services wants you to sub once in 150 days or they will drop you. This happened to a friend of mine who was on two consecutive LTS assignements.

Why do these sub agencies exist and why would districts use them
when they hire their own subs?

@ CC96: I am technically employed by a sub agency (EduStaff) instead of individual districts--when I was hired I got "approved" for my entire county ISD. In a way it's kind of nice because the agency handles all paperwork, payroll, etc--it's very reliable and I've never had a late paycheck. As for why districts use them, I assume it's a cost-cutting measure of some kind.

In answer to the original question, the districts I work for usually require you sub one day in the fall and one day in the spring in order to be considered "active". If you don't meet that, you can be removed from a district's list, although you can request to be put back on if you want to.

I definitely plan on working once a week, so even if the requirement is only 10 days, I'll have that. I counted 30, provided I got every Friday there is school, or the day before a day off if the week is weird.
The most concerning weeks are right after winter break, and spring break. I don't even count on those.
But still, that's 28 days.
Since it doesn't seem to be that many days, I do feel better. I'm likely to make the minimum for sure, since it seems to be really low. They never told me what the minimum is, but I don't see it being that different. Thanks for the responses. .

It's a good question. The Staffing agency told us we were required to work at least 4 days a month, but there's been times I only worked once or twice because I was working my other job or at other districts. Nothing was done. I'm still on the list.

What if there's a shortage of jobs? In other words, what if you can't press on that "accept job" fast enough? (especially when there's job finder apps like jobulator or subassistant) Is that your fault for not taking on a job? That seems highly unfair. There's districts I know of that says that they can't guarantee the number of days a supply teacher works but that is not a cause to take them off their lists.

The school district I sub in requires one sub day per year to stay in the system.

My districts require 10 days per year, but if something precludes you from meeting that goal, you could probably call the sub tech to explain.

I only have two days in at one of my three districts, and 27 total at the other two.
