Additionally, the district said it is implementing incentive pay for substitute aides, paraprofessionals and secretaries who work a set number of days per month. Substitute aides, paraprofessionals and secretaries who work 10 full days per month will receive a bonus of $100, $200 for 15 full days and $300 for 20 full days, according to a statement.
Dan Tarpey, district human resources manager, said while finding replacements has been difficult for several years, the coronavirus pandemic has made it even more difficult.
“We are facing the same labor shortage as other industries across the country, and we hope that the increased wages will help us attract more replacements to meet the needs of our district,” said said Tarpey.
