    There's 2 kinds of pay for subs in most districts of Northeastern Illinois - restricted pay and unrestricted pay. Restricted pay is for folks who take specific grades. That's typically $85 per full day. Unrestricted pay is for all grades and is $90 per day. Those who don't do restricted and unrestricted pay for their subs just pay them a flat $90 per full day regardless if they request certain grades or not.

    After 20 days of subbing it usually goes up by $10, as an incentive pay, and for a half day, it's usually half of what a full day is.

    Catholic schools pay $77 for a full day and $38.50 for a half day.

    Long-term, of course, is usually more no matter where you are though the extra pay doesn't usually kick in until day 10.

    What about the rest of you subs? Where you you sub and how much do you make?

    I subbed last spring...in southern West Virginia...for a full day we received $95. After 30 consecutive days you pay went up to $135...however, that was 30 days in the SAME class...if you missed one day your pay went back to $95 and you had to rebuild those 30 days.

    I am very excited! I signed my contract yesterday! I'm a real teacher! Now if I get sick, I can miss a day and still get paid!:) Woohoo!

    In Wisconsin I think it really depends on what district you work for as far as sub pay. I subbed last year in 2 districts about 20 miles away from each other. At one I made $80 a day or $45 for half days. At the other I made $100 a day or $50 for a half day. They both when up if you did a long term position (20 days I think??) about $30 or so.

    Most of the districts in my area pay about $100 per day. I also have a long term substitute position which raises the pay!

    Wow, I'm impressed! You all seem to make better sub pay! Texas really pays rotten! In my area, subs are generally paid $50.00 per day and $60 if you are certified. After 30 days, it goes to $70.00 per day.

    Last year in Indiana I got paid $70/day. When I had a long term position (after the 15th day in the same room) the pay went up to $177/day. I recently moved to Missouri and the subs around my area make about $100/day.

    In the district I'll be subbing in this year it's $85/day for non-licensed teachers and $90 for licensed. If you committ to sub exclusively in that district it's $90 for non-licensed and $95 for licensed. After 21 consecutive days it goes up to $95 for non-licensed and $100 for licensed. It's one of the highest paid districts for subs in the area. Where I student taught it's $70 a day for licensed teachers. There was a district not far from me, though, that if you land a long-term position you must have a BS or BA and the pay is the same as a step 1 teacher.

    Here in Ontario it's about $17/hour for non-licensed (just over $100 per day), I haven't had work yet since I've officially been licensed, so I'm not sure what the licensed rate is, but I believe it's quite a bit more ($150/day I think). When I took a long-term position as an unlicensed teacher I was making $26.33 per hour.

    In the Iowa districts that I sub in, most schools pay subs $90.00 day. If you sub a 1/2 day it is $45.00. For long terms it varies on the district. Last spring I did a long term and after 10 days in a row my pay went to 119.00. In another district I know they go up to 110.00 after 10 days but will go back and pay the difference of the first 10 days. It varies but it really adds up if you can stay busy.

    Where I teach in Minnesota most of the area schools are about the same. $80 a day and $40 for half. Long-term is more. The first ten days are $100 and then you get teachers salary equivalant to the time you are teaching.

    Here in KY, the sub pay ranges from 70-90 $ a day (1/2 for 1/2 day). The districts I sub in are $72 and $77 per day. If I work in one position for 20 consecutive days, the pay is that of a certified full time employee.

    Here in Cedar Rapids, IA it is $106/ day regular. If you teach more than 11 days in a row, in general, you get $20/hr, which makes it $160/day. Some districts around here will put you on the teacher pay scale after the 11 days, though, and I think you make closer to $200/day then. But here you do HAVE TO be certified to sub, as well.

    In southern NY-state the average is $80/day for a certified teacher - there are districts that are higher and lower. There is also an increase in pay after 20 consecutive days - not sure what it goes up to. If you get approved by the BOE for a long-term assignment you get paid what a f/t teacher with your qualifications would get.

    If you are not credentialed, it's $103 per day, $118 if you sub 16 or more days in the same classroom. If you hold a valid credential, add $10 per day.

    Have you ever looked at your annual take home pay? A friend of mine figured it out. After taxes, it's $95 per day. If I worked all 185 days in the school year for full days of work, I would make $17,575. That's after taxes. Good thing my husband has a job that pays the rent and health insurance. If you live in CA, there is NO WAY you could make it on that salary!

    In the district that I live I was paid $90 the first 29 days. I then went up to $150 until day 49. After that you were then paid $180. When I left subbing, I was making a $180 a day.

    In the district where I teach, a small school, they pay $80 a day. They complain because they have no subs, but they don't pay worth squat.

    In Iowa thats pretty good money! Last year I made about $16,000, and that was subbing, working at Sears, teaching at an after-school program, working at that after school program, and one full-time teaching check (I started in November).

    In district #1 I make $125 a day and $145 after so many days.
    District #2 $110 a day and $130 after so many days or after so long in the system.
    I don't know what my new school district will pay but it's like $110 also.

    I kind figured the Substitute Teachers in the Carolinas would make around $60 a full-day while the ones in California get paid $115 for the same full-day of subbing all due to that beautiful thing we call cost of living.

    I sub in West Virginia and in my county the sub pay is $101 and some change per day. After so many days in the same position( I think its 7) you get a raise and again at 30 days, but right off hand I can't remember how much the raises are.

    In my parish (county) in Louisiana, minimum pay for day-by-day substitutes for 2005-06 school year:
    a) Certified: $ 50.00
    b) Non-certified, degreed: $ 35.00
    c) Non-certified, non-degreed: $ 30.90

    Just recently the school board increased the pay. Now a non-certified, non-degreed substitute is payed $37.00 a day. I am not sure how much the other types are paid now, but trust me it is not much!

    I am currently subbing in Ohio and I am making $100 a day! I am not sure how much but I know it goes up quite a bit if you are in the same classroom for so many days!

    The districts I subbed in last year ranged from $70-90. The one where I got a long term sub job paid me $80 but after 45 days it would go to $100. My job lasted 43 days and then they immediately assigned me to another classroom. I went back down to $80 (new assignment starts at day 1 pay) and had to pay $15 to the state for emergency certification! It became a 90 day job which led to full salary and benefits.

    Last year subs in my district got paid $45/day. I think they got a pay increase, but I'm not certain.

    I wish they would pay more. The quality of subs and also quantity is definitely lacking. If they paid more, we would get more retired teachers and other competent people to come sub. I wouldn't work for forty-five bucks a day!! It's very frustrating to have someone who is barely literate come take over your class for a day!!!!

    Level B substitue $62.00 (Associates or 60 Semester hours or 90 Quarter hours)

    Level A substitute $66.00 (Bachelors plus)

    Regular Licensed substitute $70.00 (current teaching license)

    Retired Teacher substitutes $92.00 (retired from the Utah State System)

    After ten days of consecutive subbing in the same assignment, you receive $10 extra per day. They make that retro-active for the previous ten and the rest of your time in that assignment.

    In our school board, we get 95% of the yearly wage of a year 0, level 1 teacher (pro-rated by day). It works out to $195/day -gross(Canadia dollars -taxes -union dues -ei, it's probably abou $130/day net)

    Our board only allows uncertified subs at the end of the year when retirees have maxed their hours. Then they only allow teacher's college graduates. Their gross pay is about $175/day

    Substitute Pay

    I quit my full time accounting position in December of last year, planning to substitute teach until I started a Post Bac Teacher Licensure program in August. I am suprised to see most states make more per day for substitute teaching. In the county I sub in, we make $60 per day for a teaching position, $48 for an assistant or clerical position. There is no increase in wage (as far as I know) for having a college degree (which I do) or for being a certified/licensed teacher (which I am working towards). I guess one consolation is that I have had an opportunity to work with different ages, so I have determined what age I would like to teach.

    As a substitute teacher with a high school diploma, I receive about $56 a day (gross) for elementary schools. For middle schools and high schools, it's $60. Half days are half the pay of a full day.

    Pay increases come with degree levels. If I earn 60 hours of college credit, the pay increases by about $1. It goes up $1 per degree level. The highest pay level is reserved for substitutes that are retired teachers, which is $91 a day for elementary schools and $97.50 a day for middle schools and high schools.

    In comparison, I make about $50.25 a day as a McDonald's crewmember over the weekends.

    I sub in Williamson County, TN and with a 4 year degree, but not certified, I make $75 per day. $5 bonus per day if I sub 5 or more consecutive days. I think WITH certification we make $85 per day. Of course, Tennessee isn't known for our GLOWING education funding!

    I'm in Eastern PA. The district I sub for pays $90 a day. You need to be certified to sub, but some districts (like mine) can offer emergency certification to anyone with a 4 year degree, as long as the superintendent can specify a need for subs.

    I'm certain that the amount per day increases if you work so many consecutive days, but I only want to do a day or two a week. I teach pre-school two mornings a week already, so subbing is just extra for me.
