ATR Question

An ATR is supposed to cover a certain program for a total of one week.

Is the ATR required to leave sub lessons in case she is absent?

Who planned the week's content that the ATR is covering?

If the regular teacher left plans for the week, presumably they can double as sub plans in case the ATR is absent.

If the ATR is developing the plans for the week, then I would think that she should leave sub plans in case she is absent.

Of course, I have no idea what is required under her contract. I'm just applying my own "common sense" which I'm sure has little to do with the actual rules. ;-)

It is the regular teachers job to do this.

The ATR is only subbing for a short time and often thinks he will have the class a second time and does not.

Much of this stuff is grey. There is not lengthy precedent. But sounds to me like a coverage. She's not responsible for grading, is she? For testing? Sounds like they are not her classes.

ATRs covering less than a full time are subs. They don't have to do lesson planning, test designing, grading or report cards. It is not a grey area at all.
They must take attendance, like any other sub.
