Substitute Expectations During Distance Learning

All Substitutes are required to wear masks upon entering the school grounds until further notice.



The District will correspond with all Substitutes through their email. As long as you are an official Substitute of Lynwood Unified School District, your email will be the main source of communication in lieu of your personal email. Daily auditing of your email is highly recommended.


Arrival time

All Substitutes are required to go to the school site for their substitute assignment. Arrival time to each school site is 8:00 AM.  You will check in with the Secretary.  The school will provide you with a device and safe place in which to work.  If you did not previously receive an email to be a co-teacher, you will need to receive a classroom code from the Secretary. Follow the Substitute Quick Reference Guide for directions on accessing the Google Classroom here.



Work hours

Substitute official work hours are from 8:00 AM – 3:00 PM. Although distance learning classes end at 1:30 PM, Substitutes are expected to be available during this time to assist with parent questions, student homework help, calling home to check on absent students or complete online trainings which can be accessed here. 





All Substitutes are required to take attendance in AERIES.  The Secretary at each school site will generate a sub account for you the day of your assigned duty. Please see the Taking Attendance video link on slide 7 of the Resource Guide  This video should be viewed during your planning time (8:00 – 8:45 AM) on the day of your assignment.



Sub cards

All Substitutes will continue to complete the sub cards for payment.  A Principal’s signature is required at the completion of your substitute assignment.


Dismissal time

The end of each sub assignment is 3:00 PM.  Please remember to have the Principal sign your sub card.  Return your device and any other materials received from the school to the Secretary before you leave at the end of the work day.


Work at Home

If and only if you have adequate and consistent internet service, a working computer that has a camera and mic, you may receive prior approval from the Principal to work at home.  This is a case-by-case basis at each school.  The Principal has the final authority on this issue.




Digital Training for Distance Learning

These are our available District recorded Distance Learning Trainings that can be accessed anytime, anywhere.  Our recommendation is that you view a training each time you accept a substitute assignment during the scheduled office hours between 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM.

  • Weekly webinars: These webinars are also recorded for future viewing, in addition to the webinars we offer, we have also reached out to our vendors for their schedules so teachers can attend or view them as needed.
