Having substitutes is a major help towards making sure kids get the assistance and instruction needed. Lloyd Wood is a school within TCSS and they only have one substitute for the entire school. Charice Mayleen is a Therapist at Lloyd Wood and she spoke on the difficulties of only having one sub.

"Having one sub leaves children without adequate coverage in the classroom. In a typical classroom, there is a lead teacher and a PARA. Lloyd Wood is an alternative school so having both roles in the classroom helps to manage behaviors most effectively."

The new temporary pay raise will begin on March 1st, 2021. If you or anyone you know would like to apply to be a substitute for Tuscaloosa County School systems, click here.
