    Just curious..my district in CT pays Teachers $85.00 a day and Para Subs $60.00!

    EDIT******Its been years since I have been a Sub and I just found out today that Para Subs now make $70.00 a day...a Sub let me know they got a $10 (per day) raise 2 years ago.

    Thanks:)

    Between $68-75, depending on the district. When I was an LTS, it bumped to $184 per day beginning my 21st day. Subs are hired by a third party company

    In 2005-2006, back when districts employed their own subs, regular subs made $75 and certified subs made $85.

    I think it went up with the new contract but subs made $150 a day. Sub Paras make $130.

    $85 per day here. I've never worked anywhere that got subs for paras...I wish we did! It always messes up everyone's schedule when they're out, and since they don't have to write sub plans they tend to use their sick/personal days more than teachers do.

    I teach in two districts. In the first it's 90 per day for the first 30 days, 120 per day after that. The second is $65 per day...which is just ridiculous.

    my districts pay $115, $125, and $150.

    The districts at the $115 and $150 rate are constant for all full day jobs, regardless of how many periods you work.

    The middle district is usually $125, but has four rates depending on the job, and tops out at $192.

    I'm out of touch with it, but when I was subbing 15 years ago it was over $150/day; I think it's closer to $250/day now.

    Depending on the school district, 85-105 per day for subs. Not sure about para subs; never really looked into doing that so I don't know :)

    Ours are 75-85 depending on certification. I think LTS get more, but it's not much more.

    I teach in Ontario, Canada. Substitute teachers make $225/day. If they receive a long term assignment, they get paid the rate they would be making if they were a permanent teacher, which is based on their seniority with the board, and their qualifications.

    My district pays around $100 per day, more if you're subbing at an at-risk school and more if you're long-term.

    I'm also in Ontario. Subs here are part of a union. In most school boards, day-to-day subbing, then taking some long-term positions is the only path to a permanent position. At least they are making a living wage in the meantime and have good working conditions.

    Depending on the district I sub in I can make $84-$164 a day. And then $42-$100 on half days.
    The schools where they pay more are nicer and the ones that pay less are typically much more rude and disrespectful. I feel like if anything it should be the other way around. You'd think they'd want to encourage you to come back even though the pay isn't the best. I'm not in subbing for the money, but I need to be able to support myself, ya know?

    I live in Alberta, Canada. The rate of pay in my district is $212/day. After a set number of days in a subbing position, the teacher is placed on the regular salary grid. (I'm not sure what the number of days is - I'm retired and have no desire to work that much to find out! :))

    Jeez, that's a sweet deal!
    The district I sub in pays $135/day for day-to-day, and I think it jumps to something like $165/day for long term (but I've never done that so I don't know for sure). The other district near here pays $112/day and I just found out para subs in that district make more than the actual paras do - $12/hour

    Not to be a downer, but are those of you posting from Canada using CAD (I'd assume you are)? Converting, it's still on the high end for US districts but it isn't as big a leap from the larger/ higher paying districts here as it seems otherwise. It does seem like the working conditions are likely better though!

    Here in Philly the subs are outsourced (started last year, which was something of a disaster). There is a new company for this year and the rates are "from $160/day (with valid PDE certification) and $126/day (bachelor's degree, non-certified or out of state certification)."

    I have been told that sub pay is going down in some of my local districts as a cost cutting measure. Average here is around 75 with a few districts not offering LT bonus till 20 consecutive days.

    Doing the conversion, the subs in my district earn a bit more than $200/day (US currency). Long-term subs receive benefits, and day-to-day subs can buy into the benefit plan. All of our subs are qualified teachers; many are recent graduates who are waiting for contract positions. In general, conditions for our subs are really good. The subs who are in our building a lot are just like members of the staff!

    As we have discussed, that is the biggest difference in subbing in our respective areas. Substitutes are the butt of jokes here, even though most are certified teachers. The pay is much better in your area, and it seems the working conditions are there too. Daily subs are treated very badly in most cases (LT subs are humanized and treated much better) because the attitude is that substitutes are "a dime a dozen". If some of my local districts get their way, that will be roughly the going rate for substitute teachers.

    Before Source4Teachers, about $85-$120 a day. Since their entry into this area, drop it to $70-$80, with the exception of the districts which are still independent. Biggest change - LTS who worked a full semester were paid at teacher contract rate virtually everywhere. Now, if they are using S4T, they want you to do the same work as the teacher for no more than $147/day, that after working 15 consecutive days, and if you get sick and miss a day, you have to work those 15 consecutive days again to get the "top dollar". Some districts that can't fill LTS under this new regime are at least by-passing S4T if they are filling LTS positions through recruiting over the summer. In all of those instances, I noticed, they have gone with the contract rate instead of nickel and diming the subs they truly need to be able to function. Do they still outsource for daily subs? Yep, but at least they have learned that the best candidates need to be paid appropriately, unless you want the job to become a day to day, different sub, kind of a job.

    Non certified is $85 a day, certified is $95 a day. Then on Mondays and Fridays and shortage areas (Special Ed, etc.) you get an additional $10 a day. Then if you're long term you start getting $30 more a day on the 11th day.

    In Southern California- Inland Empire/San Gabriel Valley area it varies by district:
    The lowest I have seen is $110 per day $150 LTS after a set amount of days
    The Highest I have seen is $125per day to $160 LTS after a set amount...

    None that I have seen had Medical benefits

    $90-$120.

    I thought that was low! In my homestate, it's around $180/day!

    Some of these posts are crazy. That a district would place such low value on subs that they'd barely get minimum wage... that's ridiculous.

    I'm just thanking God my husband just got a job so I won't *have* to find a second part-time gig. Plus insurance for just the two of us would be over $900 a month...how is that even possible when I'll be getting $85 a day?!

    The thing is (here at least) is the sub budget is an "easy cut" because communities identify with their teachers easier than their subs. That is how the two lowest paying districts I know of justify 65 a day...one principal says he's losing staff because they can't get subs...yet they offer $9 an hour.

    In the area it ranges from around 85-100 /day. I can make, roughly, the same amount I was making per day as a full - time teacher and deal with A LOT less BS!
