MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) —The Bibb County School District is taking additional safety precautions for such an unpredictable school year.
According to Bibb County Schools Coordinator of Talent Management, Melanique Floyd, the district wants to have at least 2 or 3 substitute teachers at each school after some one tested positive for covid-19 sometime last week.
Floyd says if a staff member gets sick, students will still be able to attend school.
“That means that we want to have subs on the ready just in case they are needed; they report to our schools everyday as well as long term subs,” said Floyd.
Floyd says short-term substitute teachers need a diploma or GED. Long-term substitute teachers are required to have a bachelors degree.
