More Essential Than Ever – A Learning Agenda for Substitute Teachers

Wednesday February 7, 2024
1:30 - 3:00 PM

Today - and every school day - hundreds of thousands of students are in classrooms with substitute teachers. Most likely, those substitute teachers have received almost no training. This challenge disproportionately impacts Title I schools, which are more likely to need quality subs, and less likely to get them. In this session, we will explore what a learning agenda might look like for substitute teachers. We will begin by exploring what high-quality training and PD look like for substitute teachers. Next, we will turn to the most challenging question – how to operationalize professional learning for an employee group that has historically been excluded from it. Highly interactive, this session is intended to be collaborative – advancing work that has long been overlooked by the sector as a whole. Be part of a groundbreaking session and help to write a new chapter for substitute teaching in America.
