At Tuesday’s school board meeting, the Okaloosa County school board approved paying $150 per-day in substitute teacher pay.
- Currently, substitute teachers are paid between $90-$115 per day.
- This pay will be for Daily and Long Term Substitutes working from August 4, 2021 through October 29, 2021.
Part of the reason for the pay increase is to become more competitive in the job market, as it has become harder to find substitute teachers.
According to the OCSD, substitutes will be notified via email by the Human Resources Department this week. The increase was approved by the school board, 3-0.
