My school district pays $40 here in South Carolina.
Where do you Sub?
I sub in San Diego Unified and before taxes, I get paid $122.05 per day for day to day. Which for a 7.5 hour day comes to $16.26/hour
Now in the Diocese of San Diego it depends on the school. Most schools pay $95 per day but some pay a little more and some a little less.
Our subs get paid $65 per day.... and our situation is much like OtterMom's. However, our teachers do not get the extra money you do when we divide up a class among us.... and I bet that happened at least 10 times in my grade last year! hmy:
I received somewhere between $100-115/day depending on the district. After 30 days (not necessarily consecutive) it went up.

Certified teachers make $82 a day (before taxes), others make less.
I sub in Grossmont Union High School District, which is basically El Cajon/East San Diego.
Jul 26, 2007
The district I sub for pays the most of all the districts in my area at $115/day & $125/day for long-term. That's the last I heard & that was 1-2 yrs ago. It may be more than that by now.

I'm in Texas and I make $75/day if I sub more than 4 hours. After your 10th consecutive day, the rate goes up to $85/day.

I'm intrested in becoming a substitute teacher, but i only have my AA working on my BA in Education. I'm not sure how much they pay here in Florida. I was wondering if someone can guide me through. Give me tips or idea as to what i should do??
Some schools that are "desperate" for subs might hire you to work for them. Call the school district office and ask. Good luck!
You can also check the website (of whichever school district you are in), usually they have all that info online.

When I was subbing this past school year in Central California I made $95/day for the schools that were in town and $105/day for the country schools.

i remember when I first subbed 8 years ago - all i had was my HS diploma and I made $35/day. That's not even minimum wage. My district pays that per HOUR for summer work. lol.

I get $58 a day in my district...and I have a Bachelors degree and i'm 18 credits away from getting my Master's. That's why i'm working on becoming a paraprofessional. My university allows me to get paid as a paraprofessional and receive credit for student teaching.

In my district, all subs start out at 75/day. After 30 days, it rises to 85/day. Since I am in school, and can only sub two or three days a week, that usually means that I don't get to 85 until sept/oct. I know it doesn't sound like a lot, but it is the highest of the surrounding districts. I only sub for one district and I keep BUSY - last year I was almost exclusively working requests, and when I start up again this year, I hope to be just as busy.

I subbed for a semester after I graduated (1999) and made $72 a day and you HAD to be a certified teacher to sub, I couldn't even sub in the school where I student taught until I had my license!!! (Iowa-not sure if that is still the case)
This is the pay for my district.
Less than 60 college hrs. $65 a day
60+ hrs (no degree) $70 a day
College Degree $80 a day. $105 long term
Certified Teacher $90 a day. $130 long term

I grew up in southwest Wisconsin and in my hometown I have been told that subs get payed about $120 dollars a day. (WHich is probably the highest in the area). When I moved in with my fiance in central Indiana (about 40 miles southwest of indianapolis) I subbed for the first couple weeks of school until I got an aide position. I was appalled to find out that subs only make about 60 dollars a day.
Since subs for aides in my district get paid by the hour, they end up getting payed more than the subs for the teachers, which get payed by the day! Isn't that crazy!
Oh, and both areas that I have mentioned are very rural areas so it amazed me that there would be such a difference in pay.

I wish that we had a pay scale for how much college we have. It does go according to how much teaching experience a person has.
no teaching cert $58 long term $68
teaching cert $90 long term $120
retired $120 long term $150

If you have a degree you get $74.50 a day. If you don't have a degree you get $50.00 a day. LT subs get paid more.
Aug 13, 2007
I am a LTS starting this year I will make 85.00 a day for 30 days and then after 30 days I will make 189.00 not a bad deal if you ask me!
Credentialing and Teaching in San Diego
In response to this message as well as other messages about San Diego, Soshootme and others, what are your opinion about completing my credentialing if my final goal is to work in San Diego? Presently I am in a credential program--Single Subject to teach chemistry and other sciences-- in Los Angeles (need to finish 4 more classes and then do the student teaching). I saw in another thread (Teaching in San Diego) that it is relatively difficult to get a teaching position in San Diego, especially in the North County. I don't know if this applies to science teachers as well. Should I complete my program in LA or should I try to transfer to a credential program in SD? That way I can make make contacts during student teaching and substitute teaching.

I don't think it's low. I just started subbing, but in Northern kentucky i've gotten as low as 65.00 a day! (This school just raised to 105.00 per day, however!) Another was 70.00 per day; better ones are 110.00 per day. That's of course before taxes.
Aug 22, 2007
In Dutchess county NY 1 1/2 hrs outside of NYC you make anywhere from $72-$95/day before taxes.
We're not doing too bad here, then, in little ol' Northern Ky.! :0) Believe me, I earned every penny, too, the other day in the "Kindergarten Class from H---!" :0)
WOWIE! I'd have to concur; $189. a day is awesome! :0)
Aug 23, 2007
Certified teachers in the district I'll be subbing in get $75/day. I'd definitely take $105!!
Aug 24, 2007
WOW -- I definately think $75.00 a day is not near enough! That's just not right. Do the school systems value the students so little? I made $110.00 yesterday (the highest around here) for a fun day with preschool classes --but some days, we should be getting "Hazardous Duty Pay!" :haha:
That's the highest around here too. The district I subbed in before moving only paid $45 regards if you were certified or degreed. I definitely think its not fair and agree with the "haz. duty pay"!! But this district does pay thier teachers very well. That's one reason why I'm wanting to get on here.
If I may point out an observation here.
It seems like we are only looking at the numerical number of what we are paid. Other factors that affect pay would be cost of living in an area, population and socioeconomic status of the area we are working in. Not to mention any benefits that we may receive from our work.
Just a thought as I read some of these answers that indicate significantly less than $100.00 per diem.

Just a note, LovesKids makes $110 a day and lives in a low standard of living area. Where else can you buy a new house for less than $150,000 (bi level)? I live in the same area but haven't put in my sub application yet.
You all should move to this part of Kentucky
A smile in response to that last posting! Well, I just wanted to say that I know there are other rewards to teaching than the money aspect (There'd have to be! ) It is also a fact that I need to contribute as much as possible to this family of mine, who have made just INCREDIBLE sacrifices for the last 4 1/2 years of my schooling, so that I could fulfill my calling and live my dream of becoming a teacher. I did not work while going to school, so that I could get the best possible grades, and become the best teacher I could be. That was my choice; for me it was a good one. I found out that I had more intelligence and talent and loved learning more than I ever realized. I ended up with a 3.97 GPA.
My absolutely wonderful husband has worked two jobs all this time; still we just scrape by. He gets up at 3 AM, comes home and if he's lucky gets an hour nap before going out to deliver pizza in the evenings 4 nights a week. he gets about 4 hours (again, if he's lucky!) sleep a night.
Did I mention the incredible amount of my student loans I need to repay????? Therefore, I don't feel like I'm only thinking about the moneywhen I hope to make a decent wage for subbling. We'll never get rich, but I sure need to start really contributing, and paying my husband back -- figuratively speaking -- for all he's done.
(Incidently, I'm also going to be tutoring at a Sylvan learning center as well now.)
I do dearly love the students; that's why every day I love going to work now. That's definitely an immeasurable gift! At the same time, while sometimes on an excellent day like today, I feel like I should be paying THEM, instead of the school paying me (!) -- yet they are getting the benefit of all the money that I had to pay into my education to become the teacher I am; just as an excellent doctor is worthy of the money he is paid by his patients. Therefore, I conclude that it's not wrong to expect a decent wage. :up:

The schools around here pay between $70 - $120. Which means you get less per hour than the students at the university with work study jobs
I am currently working in a long term assignment for $105 a day, the district that i worked per diem for the past 4 years I was up to 160 a day
Jan 27, 2010
My school district used to do about $110 per day. Now it's about $95.
I make 105/day in Dry Creek and 90/day in RCSD.
$107/day in one district and $111/day in the other.
I make $80/day. Two years ago the pay was $70/day AND they were taking out $15/day for a retirement plan they wouldn't let me opt out of. I almost left the district because that was ridiculous - they took out even more than that if you worked so many days in a pay period.
Things happened and I could sub for over a year - and because I only made X amount of dollars that year I was given all of my retirement pay back . Came back and now they are only taking out $3/day for retirement - much more reasonable
The school district that I live in pays $95/day but I've applied their 5 times and each time they claimed they never received my application (even hand delivered it twice) so I gave up on them

I make $212/day in Ontario, Canada.
(after taxes and union fees though 30% is taken... so I think it works out to like, $144/day).
I can't believe some of you get paid so little!!
