Subject: Approval of Proposal for 2019-2020 Guest Teacher Pay
Vision 2022:
Background: The national shortage of guest teachers has been a challenge for school districts for many years. District 200 has felt the direct impact, along with neighboring school districts, with whom we share a vast pool of guest teachers. District 200’s guest teacher daily rate of pay is $85.00, which is the lowest rate of pay compared to not only our benchmark districts but also surrounding districts that are smaller in size.
File Attachment:
Summary: In order to provide an incentive to attract, retain and remain competitive with our neighboring school districts, we are recommending a tier system to pay our guest teachers. The recommendation would be to implement a tier system for the 2019-2020 school year. This system will give incentive to our guest teachers to accept daily assignments on a consistent basis. Additionally, this will help meet the daily needs of securing the coverage that is necessary for our district.
The incentive rates would be based on the tiers listed below:
0-29 days = $85.00/day

30-59 days = $95.00/day

60 days or more = $105.00/day
Funding: Approximately $44,000
Recommendation: It is recommended that the Guest Teacher Proposal is approved as presented.
