Summary: In order to respond urgently to the current COVID pandemic, and to ensure the District is fully prepared for students each day and is competitive in compensation as compared to surrounding districts, staff is recommending that we increase the substitute daily rates. We recommend an increase to the substitute daily rate of $170 to a daily rate of $230, and the current retiree and special circumstances daily rate of $180, increase to a daily rate of $250 (where these rates are in effect until June 30, 2022 pending future board consideration). Our rate increased at the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year. Based on this information and an examination of the rates of surrounding districts, we are recommending we increase the substitute teacher daily rate effective January 21, 2022.

This will not change the current differential pay rate used when MDEA unit members have exhausted all accrued sick leave time as this issue remains part of current MDUSD and MDEA bargaining.
