Guidelines and Expectations 
Atchison Public Schools substitute teachers are asked to follow these guidelines:

  • Arrange personal schedules to be able to leave home on short notice; 
  • Notify the Substitute Coordinator of a change in address or phone number; and 
  • Notify the Substitute Coordinator at once if you wish to be removed 
    permanently from the list.

Atchison Public Schools has high expectations for substitutes, including punctuality, appropriate behavior, and protecting students' privacy. In addition, substitute teachers can expect support from the regular teacher and the school. See the Substitute Teacher Handbook below for more information about expectations for substitute teachers.
