Posting Sub Plans

In an effort to make your life easier, streamline the sub plan process, and give you the confidence your sub will get your plans you now have the ability to leave electronic sub plans for your classes!

In order to make this work we know that you need to be confident your sub can access these plans, so that is why we will be providing hands on training to every sub! Every sub will be able to log into our systems on campus and access your plans.

As a bonus your sub will be able to leave you feedback directly in your plans! (Please see the example at the bottom of this article)

How do I get started?

In your Google Drive you will find a folder that has been shared with you to leave your sub plans. It is named (LastnamePlans) in my case RubinoPlans. Just search like this.


I recommend adding this folder to “My Drive” so you can quickly access it in the future. Just right click and select “Add to My Drive”

Please take a moment to make folders for each of your classes in your plans folder.

Please use the following format.

Now, to leave plans just create a Doc with your plans inside the class folder.


Example Plan 12-11-15

Don’t forget, this is Drive. You can drop any kind of file in here PDF, movie file etc.

Rosters – Please take a moment to upload your rosters to each class folder as well and periodically check they are accurate.

Once you get your class folders and rosters setup it should be really easy to make sub plans from the comfort of your couch with a cup of soup or ahead of time. :)

Please provide feedback to Ryan if you feel as though you can improve this process even further!

Have plans hand written out already? Scan them to drive with your phone!

or with the faculty room copiers scan to your email and then upload –

From Pete Long and Jamie Bolduc: Students Use Phones to Complete Google Classroom Assignments

Have students complete work from their smart phones.  Instruct students to download and install the Classroom and Drive apps on their phones (both free).  They can then turn work in electronically, even from class.  This could be pictures of worksheets, short typed responses, and/or audio or video submissions.

Jamie Bolduc and Pete both have student use the default audio recording program in iOS to record singing or conversations.  The default program has a “send to Classroom” feature once the classroom app has been installed.  Once they select that option, they can attach it right to an assignment you have posted in their class.
