These procedures replace all previously noted policies, procedures, and handbooks. These procedures do not constitute an employment contract and cannot create an employment contract.

District 51 reserves the right to alter or amend these procedures at any time with or without prior notice to individuals listed on District 51’s substitute list or to substitutes.
Employment as a substitute with District 51 is
at-will employment. A substitute has the right to end his/her work relationship
with District 51 with or without advance notification for any reason. Likewise,
District 51 may terminate a substitute’s employment with or without advance
notification for any reason. District 51 may also remove an individual from
District 51’s substitute list at any time with or without advance notification for any
reason. A substitute does not have a right to notification or a hearing prior to
termination of employment. These procedures do not alter this at-will employment relationship or
guarantee employment for any particular length of time.

authority to enter into an agreement of employment for any specified period and
such agreement must be in writing, signed by the Secretary of the Board of
