Substitute teachers receive wage increase in Atlantic District


April 9th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

Substitute teachers serving the Atlantic Community School District have received in increase in how much they will be paid per day, after the change was approved during a meeting of the Atlantic Board of Education, Monday . Superintendent Dr. Mike Amstein said the rate was $120 per day, but he recommended subs should be be paid $125 per day, because there’s been no increase in the past three-years, and the district needs to be competitive with other districts to retain quality instructors. Amstein said this should place Atlantic on the upper end of the pay scale amongst area schools and lessen the chance substitute teachers will shop around.
