San Antonio ISD board raises substitute pay rates to fight teacher shortage | #students | #parents



The San Antonio Independent School District board of trustees unanimously voted Monday to increase pay rates for substitute teachers while the district grapples with 100 vacant teaching positions.

SAISD, like many school districts across the country, has struggled to fill teacher and other staff positions during the pandemic. COVID-19 and the challenges of virtual instruction led many to resign or retire, and districts are hiring more employees than in recent years, with help from federal coronavirus aid.

Nationally, employment in public education decreased by 575,000 workers between February 2020 and October 2021, according to the latest jobs report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
