    What are the pay rates for a substitute teacher at CCSD93?

    • $150.00 per day for the first 35 days in one school year

    • $160.00 per day for 36 plus days in one school year

    • Long-term assignments in a licensed teacher role following 20 consecutive days to earn 1/180th of the BA Step 1 of pay as a daily rate 

    Do new substitutes receive any training prior to accepting assignments?

    All substitutes are required to attend a yearly substitute in-service training session.  New substitutes attend a 4-hour in-service session prior to becoming active in the substitute system.  Returning substitutes will be asked to update their applications and attend a 2 hour in-service session each year.

    How and when will I know about available sub assignments/vacancies?

    CCSD93 uses the Frontline Absence Management automated substitute calling system. Substitute teachers can sign up to receive an alert when a vacancy is posted or they can check available vacancies when they are available.  Some vacancies are posted well in advance, and others become available as a same day position each morning.  Training on this system is done for new substitutes during the 4-hour in-service.

    Is there a minimum number of days I need to work to remain on the substitute list?

    There are no specific requirements regarding a minimum number of days worked. Substitutes who rarely accept positions will be notified annually to confirm their interest in remaining on our list.  

    Is there a maximum number of days I’m allowed to work as a substitute teacher in CCSD93?

    The state of IL has established parameters for certain individuals.  Retired teachers are able to work up to 120 days in a given school year.  Substitute teachers with an STS license cannot remain in the same position for the same teacher for longer than 15 consecutive days.  Those with a SUB license can work a maximum of 90 consecutive days in the same position.

    Can I choose which school I’d like to substitute for?

    Substitutes choose which assignments to accept.  We encourage substitute teachers to work in a variety of buildings and settings. However, they are ultimately able to decide if they would like to accept available assignments.
