FALLS CITY – Substitute teachers working for Falls City public schools will get a bit more money next school year.
The Falls City school board voted on Monday to raise the pay of the substitute teachers from $110 to $125 per day, an increase of over 13 percent.
Superintendent Tim Heckenlively told the board that it has been over five years since they raised the pay for substitutes.
He cited the daily pay for other nearby districts, with Nebraska City Public Schools paying $135 per day and Syracuse Public Schools dolling out $142.50 per day.
He also told the board that it has began getting more difficult to find subs, of late.
The board voted 4-1 to raise the pay, with Scott Hollens voting against the motion. Board member June Bowers was absent for the early afternoon monthly meeting.
