Inquiry: How many sick days do you usually take per year? What is your general routine for sub planning? Does your school hire actual subs or have other teachers cover for you?
I’m asking because this year has been incredibly difficult for me. I’ve taken more sick days than I ever have. I do manage a chronic condition and some days I know that’s what’s causing all of this mayhem, but it’s been exceptionally bad this year. (I haven’t gone over my allotted time off, but I’m getting close.. we get 5 days per year.) My school doesn’t hire subs. Other teachers have to cover for me. I know that everyone signs up for it and knows this is the procedure, but I can’t help but feel totally guilty when I have to call out. (On top of already feeling sick…)
Just wondering how other schools and teachers handle it. Thoughts?

- ohyesjulesdid answered: Private school? My district pays for subs till I run out of days, then sub differential is subtracted from salary. msg 4 more details.
- littlestwampum answered: I get 3 sick days per year (+3 personal). We do 100% internal coverage as well. I prepare VERY simple lessons: all IP, tests, or a movie.
