    Districts that don't use an agency generally pay more. Those agencies aren't in business for nothing - they are getting a cut. The district is convinced to go with them because of the numbers they have, and the fact that they no longer need to hire a dedicated sub caller. Subs go with them because they can see multiple jobs on their computer. Subs were making $100/day without the agency, but only about $70 with the agency. Additionally, credentialed teachers used to get $150/day for longer term sub jobs, but the agency only pays $120. Where do you think the extra money has gone to?

    $50 for a half day, $100 for a full day, $129 if you teach all periods and don't have a prep. However, that's supposedly low as it was rumored to be that much 10-15 years ago and has not gone up with the cost of living increase. Teachers are appalled at the low pay we get.

    I make in the low 90s per day and I live in an area with a high cost of living. If I didn't live with my parents there's no way I would be able to do it. I'm living paycheck to paycheck and I don't pay rent. I also still have to pay thousands more to take additional courses and get more certifications to better my chances of getting a job. It's just so frustrating.

    It's a shame that some states/districts do not pay their substitutes a better wage. Even though substituting doesn't involve the same work load as a permanent classroom teacher, it's still a stressful job with a lot of responsibility that also involves a formal education.

    I teach in Canada and all substitutes where I'm from make $225 a day. Long term assignments will vary based on the qualifications.

    The largest district in one big city of Texas pays $79 a day and $50 for half-day for non-certified degreed teachers. Certified get $90 a day. Long-term $100 or $110 a day.

    Wow, I live in an expensive area and one district pays $95 and the other $111. I can't survive on this pay. I can't believe schools in the Midwest are paying more than districts in NY.

    $214 a day in my district. A sub will get full teacher salary if they sub in the same class for two or more days. If I take a personal day, they take the $214 from that month's salary. Gotta love Canada if you are a sub. :thumb:
