Substitute teachers should be placed on their salary step but without benefits when it is readily acknowledged that the staff member for whom they are substituting will be out an extended time or of a fixed duration.
Therefore, a substitute will be placed on the district salary schedule as follows:
a. When the teacher has been out for more than 30 consecutive days, and/or
b. The teacher or physician indicates that the teacher will be out for a substantial period of time.
c. Once the duration of the stay is known, a substitute must join the retirement system at the appropriate tier with district and individual contributions.
d. Sick days granted on a one day per month basis.
e. If the duration exceeds one semester, all benefits will be paid.
