EVENTS & GATHERINGS
Annual PCPO Teacher Crawl
Each year, PCPO teachers have the opportunity to gather for a day of learning, socializing, and collaborating. Co-op teachers are often the only employee at their schools, so this time with colleagues is invaluable for seeing other classrooms, learning from one another, and enjoying
FOR PCPO SCHOOLS
PCPO is no longer maintaining a list of short-term substitute teachers for schools. We highly
recommend that each school come up with a plan the for the various situations where a
teacher needs to be away from the classroom. Remember that all adults working with
children are required to have a background check and there needs to be at least one person
present in the center at all times who has current certification in pediatric first aid, CPR and
AED. This certification must require a hands-on demonstration of skills.
Subs can include
-Parent from the same class
-Parent from the school
-Multiple parents may job share for the same position
If your school is in need of a long-term sub please let us know and we can notify the PCPO
PCPO can provide sample substitute guidelines for your school, please email email@example.com if
you would like a copy of the guidelines.
