PAETEP and LTS or USC teachers that work part of the year
Any USC teacher that works ANY time during a school year, needs an 82.1/82.3.  For substitutes, if they complete at least a 1/2 school year (in the number of days worked), need 82.1/82.3, regardless if they finish the school year.  An LTS that worked the first semester only would need an 82. 
As per Dr. Rozzo (see question 1 below), in a situation that a USC teacher does not finish the school year, regardless of how long they worked during the school year, needs 82-1/82.3 to be completed.  In those situations, you use observations, walk-throughs, informal observations and anecdotal data (if no other data is available), and information from their last year's evaluations to complete their 82. 
PDE reply to our questions below:
1.  How do we handle 82.1 for USC teachers that only work a portion of the year?  The example: staff member worked part of the year (did not complete 1/2 year), completed SLOs, but did not have any walk-throughs or formal observations.  The staff member was on a leave of absence. 
2.  How do we handle LTS that finished the year and an LTS that does not finish the year?

Sharing from my past experience as a Superintendent,  I would complete an 82-1 for any substitute who served a ½ year of greater…no matter what time in the year they served.  Also, with your teacher on leave who did their SLOs and then went on leave, I used to default to their scores in their last evaluation to complete all sections of the Act 82-1 since new information was not available.
