ATTENTION ALL CURRENT SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS!
Mark your calendars! The time is drawing near for you to call SubFinder (706-826-4658) and pre-register for the 2014-2015 school year. During May 1-31, you must call the SubFinder number, enter your pin, and listen for the option to pre-register. (You CANNOT pre-register on line.)
Failure to pre-register by the end of May will be considered your request to have your name removed from the Active Substitute List for RCSS. Assurance Letters are no longer mailed to Active Substitutes.
You will then need to fill out a GCIC form (found at the “Substitute Center”). There isn't a charge for the CGIC form, however, Mrs. Young will need to have it sent/brought to her (room 210, Central Office) no later than June 30, 2014.
