The district I'm scheduled to be in tomorrow has canceled school on account of the cold weather. I'm waiting for them to take me out of the absence so that I might be able to pick up work in one of the other two districts I sub in. The joys of subbing.

Yes, some love to keep us waiting. There was one horrible middle school I used to sub at. Office was chaos central. Too busy putting Band-aids on things to take care of a sub who just needed his classroom keys. I would finally get them about 10 minutes before the homeroom bell.

Can you cancel the job yourself or does your district keep track of cancellations?

Cant cancel on your own is silly

In my districts, all new subs cannot cancel on their own either (they will never be able to). It causes nothing but last minute scrambling when they have to call in to cancel. However, subs hired a few years back were "grandfathered in" and can still cancel on their own (including me). I do not understand why a school or district doesn't allow subs to cancel on their own (at least in advance). It just means more work for them and opens up miscommunication issues when a sub has to call someone in order to cancel a job. Sometimes it takes a while for the message to be received.
