Teachers and administrators in the Sevastopol School District will discuss the possibility of increasing compensation for in-house substitute teachers who cover classes for other instructors. They cover for teachers who have to leave for family emergencies, doctor appointments or other personal reasons. Teachers who serve as in-house substitutes are currently paid $16.31 an hour for each class period they cover. That rate has been in place for a couple of years while compensation for full-day substitute teachers was increased to $120 a day. Full-time teacher representatives have indicated they'd like to see in-house pay rates increased. Superintendent Kyle Luedtke says the need and benefits of the request will be discussed at the district's quarterly meet and confer session.
The Sevastopol School District's Meet and Confer session includes teachers and administrators representatives and two school board members. That meeting will take place Wednesday, October 16th in Room 107 at the school building on Highway 57.
