Not in my district. all contracted employees get paid September to June.
Our LTS get paid every 2 weeks on the same schedule as subs or hourly employees. They do not get paid over the summer.
I just accepted a long term subbing assignment myself. It is typical to expect a contract to be offered to me to sign with the start date, end date, start time, end time, and daily rate of compensation?
In many districts, you are typically paid the regular sub rate for x amount of days and then receive a higher LTS pay. Not sure at what point paperwork is involved, if at all.
You would not be paid over the summer in any district I'm familiar with.
LTS positions in my district get a daily rate- no pay over the summer because you don't work over the summer.
Anything under 90 days at my district gets daily sub pay. Anything over gets 1st year teacher salary. I know full year LTS gets 1st year salary + benefits. The salaried positions have the option of getting all pay during school year or spreading it out over the summer too.
Needless to say, they try to keep LTS under 90 days.....
As far as I know if you're a LTS the only difference is the slightly higher pay. Most districts won't offer benefits, although some might. But you're still not considered a permanent employee, and because your assignment is over at the end of the school year I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be compensated for the summer.
In my division you are paid for your contracted months. You would not be paid for the summer here.
Not around here.
In my district, subs don't have the option of spreading their pay out over the summer. The only way you'd receive a paycheck during the summer months is if you worked during the summer months.

Of course you wouldn't get it. You're paid by the day, even an LTS is based on that. Regular teachers get their pay prorated so that it spreads over the summer. In other words, in most school districts, teachers will get a smaller check each month for their 180 days (or whatever their contracted days are) so that they can get paid over the summer months at the same monthly salary. Subs never get that.
Same is true for classified workers. They are hourly workers, and they don't get paid over the summer if they don't work.
You also can't get UI as a sub.
In my district subs only get paid for the days actually worked, so no summer pay.

In my current interim position, I am receiving teacher pay, but I am only paid for the days that I work. This is good because it is a LOT more than I was paid as a sub, but of course more work added in. No benefits.
I never signed a contract because they were not exactly sure of the dates for ending since the teacher needed release to be allowed to work again. If you can get a long term sub position, it is excellent experience to add to a resume.
