SFPS increased substitute teacher pay rates this month, with daily rates increasing $20 for non-degreed, degreed and licensed substitutes. Daily rates are now between $110 and $130 for PreK to K-8 schools and $120 and $145 for secondary schools.

Long-term substitutes' daily rates (10 or more consecutive days in the same position) increased $20 for those who are non-degreed and $15 for those who are degreed and are now between $120 and $210.

"Our substitute teachers are vital members of our school communities. We greatly appreciate their support and value the contribution they make to our schools, educators and students," said Superintendent Hilario "Larry" Chavez. "I encourage anyone interested to apply today and encourage a friend to do the same."

Substitutes can also choose to work remotely. Remote substitutes pick their school of choice and become the school's remote substitute.
