    Just wanted to ask how much subs. are paid in your area. I know that some districts pay regular subs. a bit less then certified teachers who are subbing.

    Where I work I think it's $110 per day and I honestly don't know if they have to be certified or not, or if there is a different rate for non-certified ones. Where my kids go to school it's $125 per day and you have to be certified.

    It doesn't matter if you're certified or not. It's $75/day with a bachelor's degree and $90/day if starting on the 11th consecutive day. This doesn't mean a LTS position, it just means you work 11 days in a row anywhere in the district, and half-day assignments count toward consecutive days.

    Without a degree, it's $70/day and $80/day starting on the 11th consecutive day.

    In the district I sub in it's $104/day (certified and $75/day non-certified) and you get more after you work 20 days in a year and then 50 days in a year. You also get more after five consecutive days in the same classroom and after 20 consecutive days in the same classroom you get full teacher pay retroactive to your first day in that assignment.

    Here subs get $70/day regardless of certification. If you are long-term (90 days +) you get $75/day but you have to be a certified teacher for that. That is retroactive to your first day in that assignment.

    My district doesn't require a teacher credential (even though I have two). Regardless, I get paid $125/day & $150/day long term after 24 days.

    WOW!
    I could have lived off of $135 a day.

    We get paid $70 a day no matter what.
    I couldn't live off of subbing.

    Man, another reason I should move to Hawaii!

    Subs here, in Ohio, are paid a whole $70/day - regardless - I think long-term subs are paid $75.00 after something like 3 months.....

    Hawaii here I come!!!!

    In the main district I haved subbed in (in MN) it is $100 per day, I believe you have to be certified. I did a long-term sub in a different district where the first 10 days were $105 per day and days 11-end were $190.66 per day.

    You can't sub unless you're certified here. Starting out, depending on the district, it's about $110/day. After you've been with the district a while or take on a long term position, it increases.

    Same thing here.

    There are a few districts that have bonus programs (because they want you to say yes to THEM when they call). It's usually for 25 days of subbing. After 25 days you get a one time bonus of $200. After 50 days $250...and so one. These days don't have to be in a row...just within the same school year.

    I am not sure that once you hit that mark where your subbing is considered long term (yet still a sub and not a replacement teacher) if the bonuses continue.

    ****

    BTW... regarding the sub pay in Hawaii ( and I am sure this would be the case with the lower paying sub jobs as well) the pay reflects the cost of living. Hawaii is a TREMENDOUSLY expensive place to live!

    You must be certified to sub in Ontario. I've been looking for a specific daily amount, but haven't been able to find one on the board website. It's probably around $200/day--it was over $150/day when I was subbing 10 years ago.

    In my district it's $80/day, and they are only accepting cert teachers now; existing subs are grandfathered in. LTS positions (for which one needs to be HQ in the subject) get $95/day after 29 days.

    We must be in totally different parts of the state.

    I've seen per diem subs paid $82 - $100 a day in Central Ohio. Those teachers only require a substitute license, easily obtained through the county Educational Service Center. Many schools also hire permanent substitutes for a salary slightly lower than a first year teacher. These substitutes require a teacher certificate.

    Our subs have to have a 30 day emergency credential, and they get paid 140 per day after 20 assignments (120 for the first 20)

    Here it depends on the district. Some pay $60/day, $68/day, or $70/day, and when you do lts it's $85/day. That is certified or not. Some districts prefer certified though.

    Every district is a little different but at several districts I subbed it was $125/day and you had to have a 30 day Sub permit. California is fairly strict about requirements for people being in the classroom.

    Keep in mind cost of living is a LOT more here than most states so you still can't really live off of sub pay if you are having to pay rent and make car payments.

    Certified subs get $70-100. Most districts pay more after 20 days, maybe $5 more.

    $70-$125 per day, which as someone mentioned is sort of peanuts in CA due to the cost of living.

    I'm due to start as soon as I take my CBEST (and pass). Just attended an excellent orientation that the County Department of Education puts out. There is some competition here with school districts only taking on teachers that were laid off, but I hear new subs can still expect close to full-time work - if they're good, and patient - that can supplement income: I'd never try living on less than my rent costs here!

    When I was a sub in my current district we got $85/day. They just voted to raise it...starting this year it will be $100/day. LTS subs earn more...I think it was close to $164/day (basically, it was equivalent to a first year teacher salary, minus the benefits).

    $120/a day and it does not make a difference if you are certified or not.

    They just lowered the pay in my district. It was $110 last year and this year it will be $100. Certified teachers get called first, but otherwise it's the same pay as teachers with a bachelors only.

    My district is a bit over $135 a day for the first 5 days in a position, it goes up $10 until the 20th day in the same position, after that the person is put wherever they fit in on the teacher's salary schedule. (I'll get that starting Monday 8/24 if the teacher I'm subbing for doesn't come back ahead of schedule!). I'm in northern CA and live comfortably with rent and a car payment off of the day to day pay. However surrounding districts pay $100... that would be really hard to make it on.

    In British Columbia the rate is $204/day and after 4 consecutive days (full or half days) you get paid on scale (what you would get paid as a full time teacher) retroactive to the first day but you have to work consecutive days (weekends don't count and days that you have contract work don't count). You have to be certified.

    Wow! British Columbia pays amazing!! Is that is Canadian dollars? If so it still equals $187 US which is still amazing pay compared to anything I've heard of.

    She's in the bay area (CA), so that amount makes some sense as it's pretty expensive to live there, although I'm sure it's not enough!!!!


    I live two hours south of the bay area. The schools around here pay around $90 and $95.

    If you work for the alternative school, than you get paid like $120.

    Supply teachers in Ontario get about $210 per day, after taxes it works out to be approximately $150 net.

    Here it's $140/day if you're a certified teacher... I don't remember what it is if you're not a certified teacher.
