Pay issue

If you sub in two different classes for a total of six periods that day, do you get extra compensation for subbing for what would otherwise be a prep period?

pays extra to regular teachers to sub during their prep, but expects subs to be "flexible" and work during scheduled preps for free.

Which is likely why subs are assigned to work during preps before regular teachers are.

Not unless you're a regular teacher for district like LAUSD. They call it an auxillary. And if the regular has extra classes at the end of the day, like after-school tutorial l("beyond the bell"), your duty ends by the day's end.

Yes at the high schools, no at the middle schools. I think all subs should make at least $27 for every period they teach/cover at those grade levels. I had to laugh and then cry the other day when I noticed a poster on a high school classroom wall that said how much more a college graduate makes than a high school graduate because here I am a college graduate with a credential making less money than the high school graduate according to their own promotional sign. What hypocrisy!

We are not paid for preps at any level. The trend I have noticed is that many elementary teachers are leaving an unrealistic amount of work they expect done during prep. I do whatever I can. An elementary prep is only about 20 minutes once you factor in dropping off/picking up students. As far as middle school goes, I wait to be asked, I don't volunteer.

In my district it would depend. Are you in a roving sub position for a full day and covering 6 periods? Then you would get paid for that 6th period. If you accepted two half days at the same school, then you would probably not get paid for that 6th period. However, I've never been in that position; I'm just theorizing based on years of subbing.

Ask the secretary at the school on that day if it happens again.

No extras (except we get paid gas mileage if traveling to two different schools). If I cover for another class during prep---that's life and it is what it is. I'm working and I'm getting paid. I have many many many times where I have a prep period and it's just paid free time. I look it all coming out even in the wash so to speak.

In our district if we teach during our prep at middle or high school level we get an extra $20. If we sub for a teacher that doesn't have a prep we still get the extra $20

No extra pay for extra work here. In some schools the only break I get is lunch and sometimes that is a hard fought battle.

We get extra pay (I think $20) if we sub 6 classes for a teacher that has 6 classes on the 6 day cycle. So, for example, if you teach 6 classes for Science because of labs, but the teacher only has labs on even days, then you don't get the bonus. Also, no bonus if you work 2 half days and end up teaching more than 5 classes.
