MCISD raises sub rates

Posted

The Madisonville Consolidated Independent School District (MCISD) Board approved a raise in substitute teacher compensation by roughly $20 per day on average across each category, the first such increase in five years.

The rate for a non-degreed substitute will jump from $60 to $80 while degreed goes from $70 to $90. A degreed substitute with a certification’s rate will go from $75 per day to $100 while a former MCISD faculty member who is now retired or left in good standing sees a a $10 increase from $115 to $125.

“We are trying to attract and retain the best quality substitutes we possibly can,” said Superintendent Keith Smith. “It has been about five years since we have looked at our substitute pay and this always becomes most prevalent in the spring.”

The number of substitutes necessary increases in the spring due to the high volume of extracurricular activities in the district.

Smith also offered the board an update on facilities, including the new visitor bleachers at Mustang Stadium.

Half of the necessary concrete was poured at the base of the project Saturday. The new bleachers are ready to be shipped and will be installed when the remainder of the concrete is placed.

The district is also acquiring new trip busses to be used for extracurricular activities.

“Our home-to-school busses do extremely well,” said Smith. “But our trip busses do not, in my opinion. We have been in constant communication with (Durham School Services Transportation) and they sent us a bus from McKinney ISD two weeks ago. We have two more arriving (Tuesday) and another two by the end of the week.”

The district will have a total of seven trip busses from 2018 or later by the summer.

The board also approved a raise in the district’s fee to rent out the MHS auditorium, which has recently been updated along with a number of MCISD facilities.

“Now that it has been remodeled, we need to hire people to operate the sound and light systems,” said Smith. “This will help pay for all of the workers and staff needed to properly run those systems.”

The previous rental fee of $350 has been raised to $700.
