Paraprofessional and Pre-K Assistant Substitutes Daily and Long Term

All ranks are eligible for Paraprofessional and Pre-K Assistant Assignments.

The pay remains the same in these 2 positions no matter how long the assignment lasts because there are not any extra duties or extra responsibilities involved in working these positions.

Half-day assignments:

If you work a half-day assignment, the pay will be half the amount that you would normally receive for a full-day assignment.  It is the discretion of the school whether you are paid for half-day or full-day, depending on the hours worked for the assignment.
Substitutes ranked 5, 5a, 5b, 5c, 6 & 7 CANNOT work assignments for teachers nor receive teacher pay. They can ONLY sub in parapro assignments. Subs with these ranks do not have a Bachelor's degree. We are not hiring additional subs in this category beginning the 2010-2011 school year.
