Standard Work Day

A full day is normally defined as working 7 1/2 hours from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., excluding lunch. A half-day is defined as 3 3/4 hours. Arriving approximately 1/2 hour before students at the beginning of the instructional day will allow substitute teachers to familiarize themselves with lesson plans and other duties, assignment, and events for the day. It is expected that substitutes will complete notes for the returning teacher, straighten the room, and attend to any problems or concerns which may have arisen through the day before leaving. Substitutes who have only 1-2 periods to teach in a half-day assignment are expected to work 3 3/4 hours and to ask the principal or school secretary for tasks that will benefit the school, such as assisting in the library, supervising hallways, cafeterias or playground areas.

Individuals unable to fulfill the full day will not be paid for a full day. If you must leave prior to 4:00 p.m. or are called out after the start of the school day, you will be paid at the hourly rate of $12.67.

Please check in with the building secretary before leaving that building during any time of the day. Your services may be needed in another classroom for that period of time.
