Providing the highest quality of education to our students is our everyday goal. Having reliable, fully qualified professional substitutes in our schools is a high priority to support student achievement. We expect our substitutes to be as devoted to the interests of each individual student as is the staff person whom he/she replaces. Your role as a substitute is a vital one, you are responsible for ensuring that the instructional process continues even in the absence of the regular staff person.

We value our substitutes and realize that they are a special kind of person. A successful substitute is a person who earnestly cares about children, is patient, caring, creative and versatile. We appreciate the contribution our substitutes make to support our students. We are confident you will do everything possible to meet the high standards GCC requires in our schools and wish to extend our most sincere, best wishes to you as you continue to be a valued an dedicated substitute.
