How long does an assignment need to be for you to classify it as long-term?
To me an LT is any assignment where the district pays you a higher rate. In my district, that is after 10 days.
All the districts around here are 10 consecutive days in the same position.

In my district it is 21 days or more.
Yup, it's 10 or more consecutive days in my districts...
I am officially a LT Sub as of today!
Wow.. you get LT sub pay after 10 consecutive days! Here it's on the 21st day.
WTG, MOW!!:clap: How long is the assignment?
Ours is on the 11th day and you get back pay for the previous 10 (the difference between reg sub pay and LTS pay for those 10 days).
Are you required to be fully credentialed to accept LT assignments?

It's considered starting the 24th day & after.
Not in my district sunshine*inc. You just need a 30 day substitute teaching permit and you are golden.
Not technically, but they usually interview for LTS and they do have to consider the highest qualified first. It would be extremely unusual to have LTS not credentialed at least in some way.
Lucky duck! As far as I can tell, the 30-day sub permit indicates that you can only sub for the same teacher 30 days in a school year. Do you know how they get around that? My friend told me in her district they had a non-credentialed sub enroll in a class to get around it.
Wow, that's really great!
In my district, a long term sub must be a certified teacher.
Our long term subs get paid a teacher's salary (rather than a sub's salary) once it hits 11 days (plus back pay for the first 10). They definately need to be qualified (unless there is NO ONE who is qualified available). Given that they are to write lesson plans, etc I would HOPE they are qualified

I'm in So. Cal. In the districts out here, in order to be a LT sub, you need to be credentialed.
In my district you do not need to be credentialed in order to be a long-term sub.

Around where I am they interview for all long term subs.....you have to be a certified teacher in order to get the interview! All districts differ in the amount of time to be considered a LT

In our distict you are considered LT after 10 days in the same classroom. The pay goes up $20 a day but we don't get backpay.
It's 30 days in a row (20 for special ed).
i will start a LT tomorrow. 2nd grade. the reg teacher rate doesnt start until the 16th consecutive day here.

I'm just finishing my second LT assignment (4 months each), but my county doesn't technically offer LT assignments. Same pay as regular sub. Pathetic. Sub jobs are hard to get so I take what I can to pay the bills.
My friend said the same thing. But this is what it shown on the CTC website:
How long can I teach on a 30 Day Substitute Permit?
You may not serve longer than 30 days for any one teacher during the school year. The 30 days does not have to be consecutive but cannot exceed 30 days for any one teacher. In a special education classroom, you may serve for no more than 20 days for any one teacher during the school year.
I took it to mean that we cannot sub more than 30 days, consecutive or not, for any one teacher.
