Substitute Teacher Pay Rates Change

On Tuesday, January 8, 2019 the Salamanca City Central School District Board of Education took action to raise the substitute teacher pay rates which will be made effective January 14, 2019 and increase to:
                Uncertified Substitutes -      $110/day
                Certified Teachers -              $140/day
                Retired SCCSD Teachers -     $165/day

Superintendent Robert Breidenstein said, “There is a serious shortage of high quality, certified substitutes all across NYS, especially so in rural Cattaraugus county.  The continuity of instruction in every classroom at every instructional level requires sub positions to be filled consistently.   At $80 or $90 per day, there are simply no willing candidates.   It is our intent to increase our substitute pool of certified teachers and guarantee them preferential consideration for fulltime teaching vacancies.”
