Wage Information

  • The rate of pay for substitute teachers is determined by the School City of Mishawaka Board of School Trustees.

    Our compensation categories for Substitute Teaching are as follows:

    • Certified Teacher Retirees – Daily Rate $100.00
      After each 30 days of full day substituting, an additional stipend of $300.00 will be earned; payable at the end of each semester.

    • All Others with a Substitute or Teacher License – Daily Rate $80.00
      After 30 days of full day substituting an additional stipend of $300.00 will be earned; payable at the end of each semester.

    If a substitute is called and reports to a school for less than one-half of the day, the substitute will receive one-half day’s pay as a minimum, even though the actual time on the job was less than one-half day.

    A substitute teacher holding a valid Indiana teacher’s license who serves in the same teaching position beyond fifteen (15) consecutive days for the same teacher will be compensated according to the regular teacher’s salary schedule, beginning with the 16th day of teaching. This is not retroactive.
