Substitute in Fulton
Like other school systems nationally, Fulton County Schools has had a growing need of substitute personnel due to the pandemic and other labor shortages. To recruit additional substitutes, the district established an incentive plan on December 1, 2020, that raises the daily pay rate while also expanding the number of days, from 17 to 20, that a substitute can work each month.
The daily pay rate for professional assistance, paraprofessionals and clinic assistants is increasing from $80 to $100; teacher substitute pay is increasing from $100 to $175; and the daily rate for those in long-term substitute assignments is increasing from $120 to $200. The incentive plan aims to counter the shortage caused by the pandemic and will expire May 31, 2021 (the end of the school year) unless continued by the School Board.
The office of Substitute Services supports continuity in the learning process by timely placing substitutes when the respective employees (teacher, paraprofessional, clerical or clinic assistants) must be absent.
