In an effort to recruit more substitute teachers to the Santa Barbara School Districts, the district implemented a pay raise for the much-needed fill-in teachers this week. Effective March 1, a substitute’s per-day compensation of $90-$95 will be increased to $105-$115; the actual amount varies depending on the number of days previously subbed in the district. According to school officials, the raise – which was approved by the School Board earlier this year – comes at a time when substitute availability in local schools is at an all-time low.
