SAN ANTONIO — The Southwest Independent School District is increasing pay for substitute teachers.

The district posted on Facebook that rates have increased. "As a substitute, you have a flexible schedule, gain teaching experience and work with students of all ages. Apply today," the post says.

The rates are as follows:

  • Certified teachers: $150/day
  • Degreed, non-certified and licensed: $125/day
  • Non-degreed: $115/day
  • Instructional aide: $95/day

This comes after the San Antonio Independent School District's Board of Trustees is expected to vote on a significant daily pay rate increase for substitute teachers for the spring of 2022, the district said in a news release. 

The board will hear a presentation at 5:30 p.m. Monday. In reviewing the data, SAISD found that the highest number of unfilled jobs are on Mondays and Fridays so – the district adjusted its plan.
