TUSD wants substitute teachers to know their rights

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Substitute teachers with Tucson Unified School District need to know their rights when it comes to their contract.

District board members reviewed the Long-Term Substitute Contract Rights at their meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 12. Board Member Mark Stegeman brought up the issue during the meeting.

Stegeman said a lot of substitute teachers don’t know what they are entitled to, if they teach for long periods of time.

He told Tucson News Now that if substitute teachers teach longer the 20 days in a row they are entitled to be on a teacher’s contract. That contract would offer more pay and health benefits.

Last year, the board voted to pay substitutes $100 per day. If they work 20 days in a row, their daily pay bumps up to $125.
