Victory: Education Austin wins Substitute Pay Agreement

After 3 years, Education Austin has won a historic Consultation Agreement for AISD teachers and teaching assistants!

Teachers and TAs will now be compensated when they substitute for classes or when they split classes.

Teachers and TAs will be paid as follows:

  • $15 per period, not to exceed 6 periods per day at the secondary level
  • $90 per day at the elementary level. It has been recommended that this amount not be divided by more than three.

TAs assigned to Special Education should not be used as substitutes during teacher absences, unless the TA is already assigned to support a teacher through an inclusion model.

Additional details from AISD concerning implementation are forthcoming.

We are grateful to our members who organized around this issue. We will continue to fight for more substitutes and additional sub pay.
