What is the Substitute daily rate of pay?
$140 per day.
When are Substitutes paid?
Substitutes are paid on the 15th of the month for the previous month only. If you have questions or concerns about your paycheck, please call the Sub Desk. If you contact Payroll, you will be referred to the Sub Desk to verify time reported.
Substitutes work snow days or non-student days?
Possibly, but only if substituting in a long term role, and specifically requested by the principal. In these situations, please verify the Sub Desk is aware so you can be paid accordingly.
What is a "supplemental job"?
A supplemental job is when the absence entered is not for any specific teacher. At the elementary levels this may be coverage for a Paraprofessional position. It may also be for a vacant position. All supplemental assignments are paid at the daily rate of $140.
I am having trouble with SubFinder - what should I do?
Call the Sub Desk. 402/557-2330
SubFinder will not accept my pin number!
If a job is cancelled, will SubFinder call and tell me?
Yes, but you may not hear the cancellation until SubFinder calls out. You could hear a job for the same day if you call, which would be a clue there has been a change. Review your jobs and if it is no longer in there, it likely has been cancelled.
I have been retained in a building but SubFinder keeps calling--why?
This happens because the school has not entered you into SubFinder yet. The school will need to do this in order for you to be processed for Payroll. Please alert the school when you return. The school might have entered you in as a "request" and SubFinder will call you for the job or if you call in, it will let you hear the job and you can accept it then.
I have heard I have an ID#--what is this? Is this the same as my PIN#?
No. Your sub ID# is a number assigned by SubFinder. This number is not used in any way.
How does a teacher request me?
If a teacher wishes to request you, the principal must grant them the ability to do this. If they do not have that privilege, they must see their secretary or administrator.
I am not getting called very much by SubFinder, why?
You may have too many restrictions placed on yourself or have limited yourself too much. Expand to include more buildings or additional positions that you are available. You may also call the Sub Desk to verify.
How often can I work? I want to work as much as possible.
SubFinder allows you to call in and review the jobs available--that you are qualified for. You can accept as many as you want. HOWEVER, once you pre-book yourself, please do not call and cancel a job to take another. To remain an active substitute teacher you MUST work 5 days per semester.
I need to cancel a job--when can I do that?
You can cancel a job anytime up to 3 hours prior to the start of the job. If it is closer to start time, you will be instructed to call the Sub Desk. Be courteous and call the school letting them know you have called the Sub Desk also. Please keep in mind if you are unable to sub, the sooner we know the better. SubFinder is open 24 hours a day, for you to leave a message.
I can't remember the jobs I have taken, how do I find out what they are?
Call the SubFinder and choose the option "To review current assignments" or log on to WebConnect using your UserID (your last name and your PIN # as the password). Click on "current jobs". This will display a listing of all the jobs you have worked during this school year.
SubFinder has called me and school has already started. I will be late arriving. Should I call the school?
SubFinder automatically calls on "unfilled" jobs up to 30 minutes after a job is to start. As a courtesy you can call the school to let them know that you accepted the job upon receiving a late call. The school may also call the Sub Desk to see whom took the job.
I do not want to work every day. Is there a way to tell SubFinder this?
Yes, in your "Personal Information". You can block days of the week, dates, or date ranges. Remember, if you block yourself and are asked to work a day you have already blocked, you must log on to WebConnect and UNBLOCK that day before anyone can get you into SubFinder. If it is not in SubFinder, you may not get paid correctly!
