JEFCOED Increases Pay for Subs

The Jefferson County Board of Education has approved new pay rates for several categories of substitutes.  The changes were voted on during Thursday’s meeting and will take effect immediately.

Substitute teachers with a high school diploma will move from $80.00 to $100.00 a day, and substitute teachers with a teaching certificate will move from $90.00 to $110.00 a day.  

In addition, long-term substitute teachers with a high school diploma will see their daily rate jump from $95.00 to $105.00.  A substitute exceptional education teacher will be paid a daily rate of $110.00, increasing from $90.00.

“We realize the need for subs now more than ever.  This is a tremendous opportunity to recruit individuals who want a chance to work a flexible schedule but also make a difference in a student’s life,” said Dr. Walter Gonsoulin, Superintendent.

Like many districts, Jefferson County Schools currently contracts with Kelly Services to provide substitutes in various departments.
