Substitute teachers in Dallas ISD can earn more money this school year.
The district has raised the daily per diem for substitute teachers who have a college degree—which is the majority of substitute teachers—from $75 per day to $85 per day. Meanwhile, certified teachers who substitute teach in Dallas ISD will now make $95 per day, which is up from $90 per day.
Additionally, a person who has completed 60 college hours or an associate degree can now substitute teach in Dallas ISD; in short-term assignments. Previously, a substitute was required to have at least a bachelor’s degree. The minimum age to substitute teach in Dallas ISD is still 21.
A new incentive will allow a substitute teacher who accept substitute assignments on Monday to earn an additional $5 or who works on Friday an additional $10.
