How does a direct request work?

Do you mean that the Teacher lets the school know that they want you to sub for them, and then they assign the job to you? Instead of putting it online where other subs could take it?

Why in the world would a district do away with direct requests?? . Iím thinking youíre talking about having a teachers ask you if youíre available for a certain date, then putting the absence in and requesting you as the sub.

Yes, my district allows this, thank goodness. I think there would be an uprising, complete with pitchforks and torches if they were to deny teachers the right to request specific subs.

Like you, I get nearly all my jobs via request.

I would estimate that I get 90+% of my jobs through direct requests.
One of the schools in my district just did away with this. The teachers are irate. They want to know that they have someone who has been in their classroom before, someone who knows the kids' names, the routines, procedures, and expectations. I am worried that my usual school will follow the same path.

It is a highly competitive and wealthy district, so jobs posted online are snatched up within 1 minute or less. I have worked very hard to establish relationships with teachers and students in several schools in this district.

Yes, teachers are allowed to make requests. I'd hate to see that ability done away with!

Yes here also. Teachers or secretaries can enter a sub's name for a job. I then get an email to confirm. Some do it without checking with me but some call first. Either way is ok by me.

We do not have an online system. We email,or call the district coordinator who calls each sub. We can request someone in certain circumstances. For instance, I requested a particular sub be in for me every time I'm out this year. My mom is sick, and I'm having to be out often. This sub is retired from my school and subject area. I know that she will keep continuity in my classroom.

My district does allow requests. It is a very large district, so there are plenty of jobs to go around. I only work in certain classrooms (self-contained special ed) in elementary. I will do general ed at my old school and one other school. I keep plenty busy.

Absolutely. This is how I get 99.9% of my jobs. I only sub at one school and when I walk down the hall in the morning I often have teachers chasing after me to ask for a particular date. There's another woman in my neighborhood who also subs just at this school and the two of us are very popular. lol. It's nice to be loved.

Not a true request...

but in my district, the teacher can text or call me, confirm with me that I am available, and then ASSIGN the job to me directly through AM (formerly AESOP). I then get a notification that I have a job, and then I need to accept the job either online, if I see it, or by pressing "1" if I get a call.

We do not have an online system and Iím glad. The teacher calls the secretary to tell that she will be absent and the secretary will call sub.

I have a few that always ask for me and the secretary has me sub for a certain few more teachers.
