    And every spring, the union reps go around reminding all of them to at
    apply for unemployment. Apparently, at least some of those applications
    are approved.

    The district's response has been to encourage all the subs to teach summer
    school (as in, we have work available for you during the summer, so if you
    don't apply for that, don't try to get unemployment.)

    But there aren't many absences during summer school...it's only five or six
    weeks long. So I guess the worst that would happen is, somebody would get
    unemployment benefits, and then have to pay back one or two days worth if
    they do happen to get any job calls over the summer.

    In any event, there's absolutely no harm in applying. The surest way to
    get no unemployment at all is by failing to apply for it. And if you're
    having unemployment funds deducted from every single paycheck during the
    school year, applying for summer benefits is certainly you're right. The
    fund exists for a reason, after all; that's why people have to pay into it.
