Substitute Teachers' Group

The Substitute Teachers' Group (STG) is a subgroup of Calgary Public Teachers, Alberta Teachers' Association Local 38. Each year in September, substitute teachers gather at the start-of-year orientation and elect a Committee. The purpose of the STG Committee is to discuss issues/concerns that substitute teachers have and act as advocates to pursue solutions.

The STG periodically publishes a newsletter with matters of interest to substitute teachers:

The STG welcomes members to view this photo presentation of its members engaging in PD, Association, and social activities.

If you have questions or concerns regarding substitute teacher conditions of employment or practice, please contact the Local 38 office at 403-262-6616. Suggestions for improvements to article 7 of the collective agreement (provisions applicable to substitute teachers), as well as professional development opportunity suggestions for subs, may be sent to substituteslocal38@gmail.com.
