Substitute teachers at Austin Jewish Academy are now almost exclusively parents. The school says it’s because parents are the only ones willing to help at this point.
“It’s been really difficult on a day when we have teachers who need to stay home because they’ve been positively diagnosed,” said Principal Chris Augero.
But they are not the only ones. Hays CISD is also urging parents, and anyone else, to fill in paid substitute teacher jobs as soon as possible. In total, the district said it needed 281 registrants, more than the 100 the district typically needs per day.
Hays CISD communications director Tim Savoy said: “Rights are not sublime, pass background checks and fingerprints, go through a training course, show that they have the right to think right. and make executive decisions,” said Hays CISD communications director Tim Savoy.
