Board approves pay incentive for substitutes


The Board of Trustees has approved a daily incentive for substitutes to address lower substitute fill rates that are a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The additional $20 daily incentive is designed to increase fill rates and provide support to campuses during the spring semester.

The $20-per-day incentive will be paid on top of any other incentives for substitutes. Substitutes will continue to receive the additional incentive of $5 for working on Mondays and $10 for working on Fridays. Substitutes working a full day of service at an ACE campus will also continue to receive the ACE $10-per-day incentive.

The cost of the daily incentive will be funded from existing substitute cost savings that resulted from the time the district was conducting all virtual classes and the decrease in fill rates up to Dec. 17.  This incentive will become effective Jan. 4, 2021, and remain in place until the end of the 2020-2021 school year.  The substitute compensation rates remain the same and are listed in the table below; the $20-per-day incentive will be paid on top of that rate. An excerpt from Compensation Resource Book is listed below.
