Forget, Where’s Waldo? Where’s the Sub?

For the last couple of years, FCEA has collaborated with the district’s Human Resources’ subdepartment on solutions to address the substitute teacher shortage in Fayette County. The demand for Special Education substitutes, in particular, was reaching a crisis point.

However, thanks to Superintendent Caulk’s and the FCPS Board of Education’s commitment, a $20.00 daily incentive is now being offered to substitute teachers and paraeducators who accept special education assignments. The board took this action on November 21.

For now, the pay is a short-term strategy that FCEA and FCPS Human Resources will revisit in January to examine its effectiveness. While we know the overall shortage is far from being solved, please know that our organization continues to advocate for its members.
