Pay rates?

I will be subbing for my third year next year and am wondering do district ever raise their daily rates? If so how often? Personally I think all subs should be paid at least $160 a day and $85 for a half day.

I agree. But these are more long-term rates where I'm at. Here in Pa, the highest rate is 120 a day for daily subbing. Some districts are still only offering only $90 a day. No surprise they can't find substitutes.

We get $65 a day where I'm at. No surprise we have a sub shortage.

There is no way I would sub for $65 a day. We are about $110 average.

At the time, I couldn't find a job at all so I went for it.

I've actually fallen in love with being in a classroom and now have a para certificate and will be going back to school for a teaching degree within the next couple of years.

Districts do raise their pay rates...once every millennium. Our rate is $100/day, a $4 raise after at least 4 years. I've been subbing for 5 years, and this is the first pay raise I've seen. The rate is commensurate with other districts in the area.

We get a raise just about every year. Sub salaries are based on a percentage of the base salary of full time teachers and they usually rise that every year. It averages out to be about a dollar more each year. Right now I make $108 and some change.

I make a whopping $80 a day. We've not seen a pay raise in years. Long terms get paid $0 more than day to day subs. Shocking that I'm just about the only sub in the district dumb enough to do a long term.

So I guess it's pure fantasy to think that perhaps I will get a letter over the summer from each of my four districts, saying "hey we're raising the daily pay rate by $10 a day". It sounds like I have better chances of winning the lotto.��

After 6 months with one district, I got a $10 per day raise. But then they dropped me (without providing a reason) from their sub list 3 1/2 months later, just after their most recent substitute teacher hiring surge. Coincidence? Don't think so. Since I don't have a full state teaching credential, I'm guessing they just replaced me with less expensive newbees.

My district pays $75 per day. They used to pay $70, with a tiered stipend to bonus subs who worked more. When they made the increase, they discontinued the stipend. Depending on how much a person subbed (I sub a lot), it was actually a decrease (me) compared to earning the stipend.

$90 a day, $45 half day. 20 years ago it was $110 a day, but they cut it. Right now, long term (after 15 days, but retroactive to day one) is $100 a day, but they couldn't get long term subs, so next year will be $125 a day.

Last year in one district I got a $10/day raise and the other a $35/day raise. I was stunned at the second one. I don't expect another for a long time as both had not been raised in years.

I started two years ago and they had raised the hourly rate by .50. We get paid $130 a day or $65 for a half day.

I am amazed by the variety in pay rates. Ten years ago when I began subbing I was paid $65/day. I just returned to subbing and am now getting $80/day. I live in Maine and I've noticed that teachers salaries tend to be lower here than most other states. There are many veteran teachers in Maine who do not even earn $40,000/year.

One district where I used to sub paid $80.00/day. It has been that rate since 1998. They just raised it this year to $90.00/day. They are a "better" district and feel that people will fight to sub there. Haha not me when just down the road I make $100.00/day.

Two years ago, one district raised rate from $140 to $150, after no raises for 10 years.

Another district raised rates this year from $115 to $140, after no raises for about 10 years.

My busiest and most needy district dropped our rate from $135 to $125 seven years ago, and it is stil at $125.

However this district does pay either $150, $160, or $192 for a few special jobs that are only about 10% of the total availabel.

I have lost a lot of money over the last few weeks because I was already booked when five of these jobs ( $192) became available.

I live in an area of Southern Calif. where a 40 year old tract house commands $700K+. The local school district average fulltime teacher's salary is $80K plus generous benefits. Most of the old timers make well into the 6 figures. Subs are treated like relative dirt -- $120 a day -- up from $115 last summer. Hell will freeze over before we'll see another pay increase. We waited 7 years for the last one.

I make between $97-135/day, 3 different districts. Last September I got a check for retroactive pay for $2.50/day in wages that was raised by one district.
