SPRINGBORO, Ohio (WDTN) – Springboro Schools will be increasing pay for substitute teachers beginning Jan. 25.

According to Springboro Schools, substitute pay will increase from $100 a day to $125 a day. Subtitutes who have the same assignment for 21-60 consecutive days will receive $125 a day while substitutes who have the same assignment for more than 60 consecutive days will receive $190 per day.

“We know the last two years have certainly brought further challenges for a lot of districts, as it relates to staffing, especially this school year,” said Superintendent Larry Hook. “Our Board of Education recognizes the need for high-quality substitutes in our district, and we’re hopeful that increasing the rate will help attract more subs looking to be a part of Springboro Schools.”

Springboro Schools said this increase in pay is one of the highest pay rates for substitute teachers in Warren County.

 “We’re continuing to compete with a lot of other employers. We’re hoping a little more per hour might make someone’s decision that much easier in terms of joining our district, and working together to help educate such great students,” said Hook.
