Summer Time For Sub Teachers

I would like to know what sub teachers do during the summer months when there is no work. What do you do to make money? Do you save money throughout the school year for that purpose?

I don't work in the summer, but that's because my subbing job isn't what my family really relies on. We could "get by" on my husband's salary alone, so mine mostly covers extras. I do put aside some during the school year.

We rely on Soc Sec and pension for our day to day budget. Subbing pay is extra,so it is not crucial for me to work in the summer. Nonetheless, I like being active and out of the house a bit, so did look into working with the census (most jobs don't start 'til next Jan., but some office work did begin this past spring). My DH had a health crisis in June, so I dropped the census idea, and took the summer off.

We have a large theme park near where we live, and lots of subs (teachers too!) get seasonal jobs there.
I would think that many places around the country have seasonal employment in the hospitality industry.

I put away money from my Jan. through June paychecks for the summer. However, I was a bit bored this summer so may think about some kind of work for the next one.

I just save money during the school year for the summer but I was little short so I was trying to find a summer job.

I save every cent I can during the school year and I have an evening/weekend job that I work full-time at during the summer.

One thing to note

about summer lack of employment for subs. Many districts are using a "Letter of Reasonable Assurance" issued to subs at the end of the year. The letter is required to be returned indicating the sub will be returning in the fall if not returned then the sub is assumed to have quit. Returning the letter gives assurance of continued employment by the district or at least the chance to try for a subbing job each day.

This allows the districts to avoid paying unemployment insurance over the summer when no work is available.

During the school year, I try to save at least 15-20% of every paycheck for the summer into a savings account, and try not to take more out than I put in during the year. I also participate in as many focus groups, research studies, and legit online survey websites as I can. It still gets very tight right around this time of year. (A friend of mine literally makes a living playing slots at the casino all summer like a pro gambler and wins enough money to sustain living at the casino hotels during the entire summer. Kind of makes me a little jealous).

I used to tutor during the summer, however it seems to be harder to find people who want to pay for private tutors these days and lack of free websites to advertise. It would be nice to find a job similar to subbing during summer in which I can work when I wish, but unless you choose to risk being an Uber or Lyft driver, I dont know any other job like that, unless you are a pro gambler or poker player.

Letter of Reasonable Assurance

I do recall such a letter given to sub teachers at the end of the school year but I always WON MY CASE in court against the DOE. Most of the time, the DOE lawyer never showed up in court. As a result, I was granted unemployment benefits to survive during the long summer months.

The crazy thing is my district states the opposite in their letter. Their letter says there is no guarantee your services will be needed the following school year. I think that would help people qualify for unemployment. I do not know of any subs who tried getting it though. Technically, I believe all subs should be allowed to get unemployment in any state unless they are offered summer school job opportunities.

Summer Money & Subs

I agree that subs should be given summer unemployment benefits at least until the start of the school year. In NYC, schools do not call subs right away. Most schools begin to call subs into work in late October. The public school year ends in late June. We are talking about three months of ZERO CASH for sub teachers, which I find to be totally unfair and rugged.

During the school year sub teaching is my main income, and I also supplement my pay by teaching ESL (English) online. In the summer teaching ESL online is my only income, so I increase the number of hours I teach Online so that it's enough to replace my sub teaching pay.

When you won your case against the DOE were you a regular or substitute teacher who was hired by the district, or a substitute teacher who was hired by a education staffing company?
