School board members approve increase in pay for all substitutes

At their last monthly regular meeting, the McDuffie County Board of Education voted to give substitute teachers, paraprofessionals and bus drivers a pay raise.

"Substitute salaries have not been improved in a number of years, so I recommend an increase that includes at least a minimum wage for all substitutes," McDuffie Schools Superintendent Mark Petersen said to the board members during the meeting.

All substitutes are paid on a daily rate, which is based on their degree of eligibility. For the 2008-09 school year, the new substitute rates will range from $48 per day for those with a high school diploma to $65 per day for those with a valid or expired teaching certificate. The pay is a $4 increase from previous years, and is based on a seven-hour day. Paraprofessionals and bus driver substitute rates increased to ranging from $45 to $50 per day.

Other substitutes will be paid $6.85 per hour.

The vote passed unanimously, with all board members present.
