Now is the time to sign up and attend substitute training. San Saba ISD quite often uses substitute teachers to fill in when teachers/staff are absent from school. This year, we are asking that substitutes attend a substitute orientation/training prior to substituting on the campuses. A substitute orientation/training will be held on Tuesday, September 1, at 5:30 pm in the San Saba High School Library. It is necessary to provide substitutes with this training so that they will be familiar with new policies and procedures that have been implemented that may be unique to the campuses and to familiarize subs with the District-wide policies that are the same on all campuses. It is also important to hold this training so that substitutes can be given information on our new curriculum – CSCOPE. As well, we will be hosting an additionally training in the very near future if substitute candidates are unable to attend the training scheduled for September 1.
August 24, 2009 was the first day of school for the 2009-2010 school year. Students arrived anxious to hear from their three new campus principals. Students were met with some new policies and some were met with requests to get haircuts of which they gladly complied. All campus principals reported strong numbers in their enrollment and very positive attitudes from the students. Please continue to support these new principals and feel free to contact them regarding any questions that you may have about the campus where your child attends school.
Remember the Coach Pannell’s slogan for the year - WE ARE SAN SABA – WE ARE TOGETHER! What a great vision for our school year – it truly does take all of us to help our kids be successful. We all need to be on the same page and traveling down the road in the same direction so that our students will know that they have our support. We appreciate the support you give the students and staff of San Saba ISD.
