According to Sally Sansom, CSD Human Resource Administrator, in just the first few weeks of the school year, CSD is receiving more than 100 requests a day for substitutes. Canyons is committed to ensuring that every class has supervision, but the dearth of active subs has required schools to ask office staff to leave their regular duties to teach a class, or recruit part-time employees to come in on their days off If you’re interested in becoming a substitute teacher at Brighton follow this link for more information: https://www.canyonsdistrict.org/general-news/csd-calls-on-community-to-help-recruit-substitutes/
