Make sure the Substitutes know the procedures. I am a substitute and know the procedures are not consistent. I see instructions of placing the "Green Card" under doors but not every teacher has the "card" in their classroom. I think all Substitutes should be trained on the procedures too and each teacher's "folder" updated to reflect the Emergency Procedures. Some of the folders still have A/B schedules in them.
