15.0 SUBSTITUTES AND AS NEEDED EMPLOYEES
15.1 The District will maintain a current “as needed” employee list in order to provide a substitute pool of absent clerical and custodial employees. These “as needed” employees would be in addition to permanent employees who currently work as substitutes. The District will budget $100,000 a year with the express purpose of using these funds to maintain a substitute pool in the clerical and custodial divisions. These employees should not be utilized to fill permanent vacancies or long-term vacancies without replacements being added to said pool.
15.2 When assigning the foregoing substitutes, priority shall be given to elementary school sites to which only one clerk and one administrator have been assigned.
