Substitute teacher pay increase OK’d

MABTON – A pay increase for substitute teachers in Mabton was approved by the school board at Monday’s meeting.

Finance Director Gina Grow said the district “…has been challenged the last few years with a shortage of substitute teachers.”

Mabton was paying a rate of $115 per day. She requested a rate increase of $5 per day, which is in the range of pay for substitutes in nearby school districts.

“We are hoping this will attract more substitutes,” said Grow.

The Mabton School Board approved a pay rate of $120 per day for substitute teachers by a 5-0 vote.
