The author developed a program to aid regular classroom teachers in development of lesson plans for substitute teachers and to assist the substitute teachers in the implementation of those plans. The program's objectives were to improve substitutes' performance, to have substitutes follow teacher's lesson and and leave summaries of their classroom activities for the regular teacher. The strategy was directed to the administrators, the classroom teachers and the substitutes. Substitutes were given information packets giving them directions concerning attendance and other school-wide policies. Teachers were given model lesson plans and suggestions. Administrators assessed evaluations of the substitutes by the teachers as well as substitutes' reports of their experiences. Results of a pre-implementation survey and teachers’ evaluations of substitutes during the program indicate that the program objectives were met. (Appendices include letters from teachers and principal, teacher survey results, evaluation forms used by substitutes and teachers, and results of teacher evaluations of substitutes.)
