Pay rates

The post about pay cuts got me curious. So...I know some people consider this really personal and sensitive and all that, and I'm sorry if it's none of my business, but I'm just wondering--how much do they pay subs per day where you work? Does it change depending on your credentials? I know there's a huge range out there!

For me:
--The large city district pays $162.15 (or thereabouts...not sure about the change) for a full day, $81.whateveritis for a half day
--Districts on the outskirts and in the near suburbs all pay $150/full and $75/half
All subs in this area must be certified teachers.

Where I used to live:
--District 1 paid $62.50/full day for uncertified (anyone with 60 college credits right up through basically certified but waiting for the paperwork to go through) and $67.50 for certified. That was ~3 years ago, so rates have probably changed.

--District 2: $70/full day. No cert required; anyone with a bachelor's could sub and everyone got the same pay.

--District 3: $80. I don't remember whether that varied with education, etc.

All the districts I've worked for pay $80 per day. A bachelor's degree isn't required. Subs only need 60 college credits to work. I wish they would only hire certified teachers. It would cut down on my competition for sub work.

Wow... those are some pretty ridiculous pay rates! I guess that's why it pays to be credentialled.

I have an emergency certification and I make 90 dollars a day. However, some school districts in my area will pay up to 140 dollars per day.

In my district we got a $2 raise this year. We now get $110 a day and $55 for half days. Here we only have to have 60 hours to qualify. I'm one of those "non teachers" that subs.

After 6 years (or for long term subs) we get paid more. This is my 6th year so next year I would get $120 a day. Other than that everyone gets paid the same.

public schools have a similar rate except slightly higher and I do mean slightly $173.04/day or $28.83942/hr. Bring your calculators for that calculation-whew! Certification is not required but a BA or BS in something and passage of CBEST test is required. Rate is NOT dependent of credentials, MA, etc. The only exception is, if a sub starts the first day of school and works for a 130 consecutive days, then the rate increases $233.52/day.

Like the previous poster mentioned, this rate is for the largest district, which means the smaller ones pay less $100-150.00/day. The smaller districts have similar requirements regarding certification or lack there of to substitute.

$85 for a full day for all subs. After 11 consecutive days it's up to $175.
42.50 for half day. Less than 3.5 hours teaching time.

A couple of elementary schools that go longer pay a few bucks more.

We are now getting a flat $12.50 per hour, rounded to the nearest quarter hour.

I am sure a lot of this also depends on what the teachers make, because our long-term sub pay is 1/188th of the base pay, they start teachers here at $34k a year. I am going to assume that is rather low, but we live in a lower cost of living area also.

WOW, wish we were getting what some of you are....although with the pay change we have this year we might be losing some subs and make it easier to get jobs!

Below minimum wage

Here the pay is $55 a day! Divide that by an 8 hour day and it is below minimum wage. Yes I am a licensed Elementary Ed teacher - BS and some of my Masters too - and I could earn more working as a school bus driver, kitchen aid, or custodian - what does that say about education paying off? And no I am not critizing those who do those jobs - because I work as a cashier at night/weekends myself to pay the bills. I am also looking for a teaching job overseas - since most of the USA has massive layoffs - and an El Ed degree is certainly not in demand. I plan to contact the wage and hour division in my state concerning the low wages we are getting. My state only requires a high school diploma to sub.

I work in two districts very close to Los Angeles Unified (mentioned above) and the pay rate is quite different: $110.00 and $120.00 versus $173.00. However, many subs I speak to do not want to work in LAUSD even with the higher pay. Plus, we don't get penalized for turning down jobs, which LAUSD subs do.

The district I sub for ranges in pay $110.00-$150.00 a day. Everyone starts at $110.00 at the beginning of the year, then there are gradual increases based on the number of days you have worked.

Last year, I worked in two other districts that paid $90.00/day and $100.00/day.

In Connecticut (which has a very high cost of living!), the districts around me pay $70/day, regardless if you are certified or not. All you need is a Bachelors. The irony is that you get the same pay to sub as a teacher as you do a paraprofessional (where you only need a high school diploma). When you break it down, you average about $10/hour. Not to mention, sub lists are flooded and you only get called 1-2 times a week, if you are lucky. You are competing against *everyone* and they do *not* give preference to those who are certified (which I am). It is actually kind of pathetic....

Four districts -- each one different. $85 a day in one district up to $100 a day in another. Daily rate goes up depending upon number of days worked per school year. I am Emergency Certified and grateful that all four districts hire non-certified teachers to sub, otherwise their classrooms would be empty and I'd be out of a job! In fact, there are subs I've worked with who do a better job than the certified teachers who sub.

And judging by the number of responses, I'd say this is everyone's business....

hi, I work for three districts,
District 1 its 120 and long term it goes up $12
District 2 and 3 are about $95 and 110. It goes up after 10 days of consecutive work for the same teacher. On the 20th day than they pay from the certificated salary schedule. But these assignments are really hard to find.

Called the local districts. It's going to cost about 100 bucks to get my sub licensing to make 55 a day - even if i get called. trying to decide if it is worth it or just to be called by walmart to cashier. I also need one thousand bucks to take 6 credit hours to renew my license eventually. Really this is an insult when you have high school grads getting paid 25 bucks an hour to be educational assistants - of course they are related to the school board. I wouldn't recommend anyone going into a teaching major in college - even though I love teaching and if I won the million dollar lotto or something I would volunteer for free to teach - cause I do love teaching. Sigh.
