Frenship Substitute Orientation

Frenship Substitute
Orientation Yearly Review…
Thank you for serving our students and for providing
valuable instruction. Substitute teachers allow us to
operate when our teachers can not be present. We
appreciate you!!!
Frenship Expectations….
• We want subs that are committed to serving our students and that are
dependable. We have high expectations for our students and do not
expect this to change because a sub is in the classroom.
• Our expectation is that you will sub at least 5 times per month. We
will run a report every THREE months to determine who is actively
subbing in Frenship ISD. If you are not consistently picking up jobs,
we will remove you from the Frenship substitute list. If there are
extenuating circumstances, please contact Vicky Welch at 866-9545.
• If two or more principals request for you to not sub at their campus, we
will contact you and remove you from the sub list. Once you are
removed, you will no longer be eligible to sub at Frenship.
Fingerprint requirements…
• All subs will be required to be fingerprinted per Senate Bill 9
• Subs will be notified when they sign up to sub that they are required to
be fingerprinted. HR will print FAST passes for non-certified subs.
• If fingerprints are taken at an area district, you will not need to repeat
the fingerprint process
• Subs will be responsible for paying their fingerprint fees which will be
$52.20/certified or $50.20 / non-certified
• Frenship will have you sign a permission form to run a Criminal
Background Check with Safeschool. Applicants must report any
criminal history that might appear on either report. Failure to report
criminal history is grounds for Frenship to not allow you to sub in
the district.
Sexual Harassment
General Guidelines:
 If you feel someone is harassing you, it is your
responsibility to tell that person that they are making you
feel uncomfortable. If the harassment does not stop at this
point, then it is your responsibility to report the harassment
to a supervisor.
 Don’t say anything that you would not want printed in the
newspaper or broadcast on TV.
 Don’t say or do anything you would not want your
significant other to know that you said or did.
 Don’t say or do anything you would not say or do in front
of the other person’s significant other – or parent.
 Be cautious – things that you think are funny or innocent
may not seem that way to another person. Be careful of all
words and actions!
-Sexual HarassmentSTOP
With regard to Employee-toStudent, the behavior is
ALWAYS forbidden . . .
regardless of whether the
student “welcomes” the conduct.
DHC ( Local) defines sexual harassment of students by
staff to include “welcome or unwelcome advances.”
-Sexual Harassment“In the EYE of the beholder . . .”
• While there are similarities between
is one BIG difference:
– How the receiving person FEELS as a
result of the sending person’s behavior

NOTE: The law is concerned with the IMPACT of the
behavior, not the INTENT.
Purpose of Reporting Child Abuse
The purpose of child abuse reporting legislation is to
protect the best interests of children, offer protective
services to prevent harm to children, stabilize the home
environment, preserve family life whenever possible, and
encourage cooperation in dealing with the problem of child
It is important for you recognize the indicators of sexual
abuse victims. By reporting suspicion, it may be the
child’s only opportunity to tell.
How To Report…
Talk to the Administration at the campus. They may have additional
information that they may or may not be able to share with you.
Two Ways to Report Abuse:
• 1-800-252-5400
Call the Abuse Hotline toll-free 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, nationwide.
Make your report through a secure web site and you will receive a response
within 24 hours.
Electronic Media
School district employees will be held responsible for personal and/or school
use of electronic media. Use caution when posting words and/or pictures.
These are PUBLIC sites.
It is not a good idea to “befriend” students or parents on Facebook or other
social networks.
The employee continues to be subject to applicable state and federal laws,
local policies, administrative regulations and the Code of Ethics and Standard
Practices for Texas Educators.
The employee may not set up or update the employee’s personal social
network page (s) using the district’s computers, network, or equipment.
Best Practice – Remember that you represent Frenship and employees are
responsible for their public conduct even when they are not acting as
district employees.
Be sure to introduce yourself and tell
something interesting about you.
Lay out your expectations – but
empower the students.
Only send to office after fair warning.
Teachers in locale will assist you as
